Google Maps Now Tells You How Difficult It Will Be To Park At Your Destination

Google has announced its “parking difficulty” indicator in Google Maps for iOS and Android will now appear in 25 additional cities around the world. Those cities are:

  • Alicante
  • Amsterdam
  • Copenhagen
  • Barcelona
  • Cologne
  • Darmstadt
  • Düsseldorf
  • London
  • Madrid
  • Málaga
  • Manchester
  • Milan
  • Montréal
  • Moscow
  • Munich
  • Paris
  • Prague
  • Rio de Janeiro
  • Rome
  • São Paulo
  • Stockholm
  • Stuttgart
  • Toronto
  • Valencia
  • Vancouver

What this feature does is shows a “P” icon with a difficulty level such as “moderate” or “limited,” based on how easy it will be to find parking at the destination entered. The feature is based on historical parking data and machine learning. That way you can figure out where to park your car long before you arrive at your destination and save time.

You can download this Google Maps update today from Google Play and the App Store.
