Google Maps will now help you find parking

Google is making it easier to find a place to park with a new feature in Google Maps for Android. Now, when plugging in a destination, you’ll be able to tap a new “find parking” option that will pull up a list of nearby parking lots and garages. Once plugged in, Maps will direct your towards your chosen lot, as well as give you walking directions from the garage or lot to your intended destination.

For now, the new feature is only available on Maps for Android, and is rolling out in 25 cities: 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.

Additionally, Google announced that it would be expanding its parking difficulty icons that were added to both the iOS and Android apps earlier this year to an additional 25 cities: 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.
