Google Maps makes it easier to find parking with your phone

30 August 2017

Another important new feature included in the update is the ability to find parking near a destination on Google Maps for Android. And now Google Maps is getting even more features when it comes to parking your vehicle. Back in January of this year, Google Maps introduced the parking difficulty indicator for select areas, which has been highly beneficial. Now, that feature is coming to 25 new cities in regions outside the United States, such as Canada, Brazil, Russia and various European countries. Once you put your destination into the app, you will notice an icon at the bottom that will inform you if the parking situation is easy, medium, or limited so you know what to expect once you arrive at your destination. The feature uses the multiple destination option to add the parking garage or lot to your directions.

When making a trip out to a big city to walk around and check the place out, or going to an event in a big city where the venue's built-in parking is full or sold out, however, these new features should prove helpful.

On the similar lines, Find Parking feature will offer assistance with nearby parking lots and garages.
