The COVID-19 pandemic caused by the new coronavirus has changed people’s daily lives, jobs, and business practices in many ways. Before finding a special-effects drug or vaccine, it is clear that companies need to adapt actively to the so-called “new normal”, such as operational and hourly adjustments. In recent days, search giant Google has given its business information services more flexibility so that visitors are aware of these changes in a timely manner through search or mapping platforms.
During the ongoing epidemic, many enterprises implemented more flexible alternatives not only in working hours, but also in service types. Fortunately, Google’s business information service has also made timely adjustments to expand merchants’ ability to define their “working hours.”
Google merchants can now choose to apply the More Time option to gain more control over the time period sits they choose, or even set different opening hours on the same day.
More importantly, users can choose between different types of services and actions. If a business’s daily pick-up/delivery times are not the same, visitors can also be clearly informed at the time of retrieval.
As a result, Google search and map users can easily find the latest and exact information, making it easier to arrange safer time out during the epidemic.
