Some restaurant local panels now display “Get in Line” call to action that can be used by users to get on a waiting list. The CTA seems to be available across all devices.
Clicking on the CTA opens a waitlist interface where users can select the size of their part, see approximate wait time, and join a waiting list.
While the CTA is located where the “Reserve a Table” call to action usually can be found, I would speculate that we may potentially see both of them displayed at the same time. Google could use the 2-CTA restaurant panel interface that’s been tested since December.
This new feature seems to be another step in Google’s reservation program expansion. Earlier today I posted about the new “find a table” restaurant local pack filter.
