Our team noticed a new feature when creating an offer type Google post where Google is allowing the user to enter a specific time of day. The feature has a toggle button so it can be turned on or off.

Anyone else seeing this? Have you tested it out yet?

That feature has been there for as long as I can remember, though I think it previously said something like "Add event time" or "All-day event".

That's been true for the Event post type, but this is for an Offer post type :)

I'm pretty sure it has also been there for the Offer post type (I've had the feature built into my WordPress plugin for 2-3 years). But I won't be surprised if Google did a staged rollout on the feature like they did with other features

It's not a "only show the post a specific time of day", it's a "push the post out from time a to time b" from what I can tell.

So "show it from specifically 5pm Friday to 6am Monday", instead of "show it from 3pm-9pm this Monday through Friday".

Is that everyone else's understanding?
