Google Maps isn’t just about getting you to where you want/need to go, but also a way to find out what you should do when you get there, and an easy way to remember where you parked when you arrive. And now Google Maps is getting even more features when it comes to parking your car.
Google is making it easier to find a place to park thanks to a new feature aptly called “Find Parking.” The feature will pop up when you pick a destination and it will let you see a list of nearby parking sites, including garages and lots.
Google Maps will then navigate you to the parking area you pick and give you walking directions from the lot or garage to your final destination.
This new feature is only available on Android for now, and it’s available in the following cities in the United States: Atlanta, Boston, Charlotte, Chicago, Cleveland, Dallas/Fort Worth, DC, Denver, Detroit, Houston, Los Angeles, Miami, Minneapolis/St. Paul, New York City, Orlando, Philadelphia, Phoenix, Pittsburgh, Portland, San Diego, Sacramento, San Francisco, Seattle, St. Louis, and Tampa.
Google is also expanding the parking difficulty icon, which it added to the Google Maps for Android and iOS not too long ago, to more than 20 different cities across the globe. Here are the new additions: Alicante, Amsterdam, Copenhagen, Barcelona, Cologne, Darmstadt, Dusseldorf, London, Madrid, Malaga, Manchester, Milan, Montreal, Moscow, Munich, Paris, Prague, Rio de Janeiro, Rome, Sao Paulo, Stockholm, Stuttgart, Toronto, Valencia, and Vancouver.
