Google has a new feature to dictate messages to 3rd party apps via Google Now, while also introducing a new Google Search function that lets users tackle crowds at peak hours outside public places.
Announced on a Google+ post, the new Search feature tells users the busiest hours for business and public places so that they will be able to avoid crowds and manage their work more easily. The feature breaks down the data on an hour-by-hour basis.
Users simply look for an area, tap on the title and see an hourly graph for everyday aboard other info like contact, menu etc.

The feature works in a similar manner to how Google Maps shows users how dense the traffic is on their route. Google recently extended a new Maps feature that informs users whether the place they’re navigating by the time they reach there.
Meanwhile, Google has started rolling out a new feature that provides users the ability to send text messages via leading social messaging apps using the ‘Ok Google’ voice-command.
For instance, if users need to send a message to someone on WhatsApp, just say “Ok Google, send a WhatsApp message to Jain: I am busy Now” and the launcher would send the message using the app.
Users may also have it off in 2 steps, “Ok Google, send a WeChat message to Pal, ” when that they will get a prompt asking them to dictate their message.
Viber, WeChat, WhatsApp, telegram and NextPlus are also supported the new Google now instant messaging feature.
