Pretty neat feature in Google Maps Desktop, where you can view typical traffic by day of the week and time.

Pretty neat! Slowly blurring the lines between Waze and Google Maps...

ETA: After reading how old the article is, I have a minute left to Modify or Delete this, I'm debating which one I should do...

So the feature has been available for years before 2012 according to the article's date.
In another half decade we're gonna discover hoverboards and fidget spinners :P

oops. I just noticed it today, and googled it, and saw that they just recently rolled it out. Didnt notice the date of the article.

Mods: can you backdate my post to 2014 please?

Is it only me? Or is this feature disabled now?
 Trying to ask a question but don't see that option?!
