    Google Maps gets several really useful features, check them

    Google Maps is one of the most popular mapping programs in the world, and the Mountain View company works hard to enhance it on a regular basis. New functionalities, as promised a few months ago, complete the application and make users’ lives simpler.

    SEARCH FOR FAST CHARGERS FOR YOUR ELECTRIC CAR

    Google Maps can now help you find a fast charger to charge the battery of your electric car. By putting “charge” into the search area, the app will display nearby charging stations. Filters can also be used to limit your search to stations with the right plug or those with a “rapid charge” of 50 kW or higher.

    Google Maps obliges, and we may also obtain extra information, such as operating hours or… the number of terminals that are being utilized in real time. It’s a great way to avoid being stuck in front of a fully occupied charging station.

    The main disadvantage is that when tried in Paris, the program appears to identify just specific stations for the time being. Those alone from whom Google can collect information in real time.

    ACCESS IS IMPOSSIBLE

    Accessible Places, which debuted in Australia, Japan, the United Kingdom, and the United States in 2020, is now available worldwide. When enabled in the application’s accessibility settings, this allows you to see if a location is accessible to users in wheelchairs. Not only does Google Maps show if this is the case with a pictogram, but a section also offers extra data, such as whether the car park has handicapped places or whether the bathrooms are compatible. This is especially handy for people who have limited movement or who are carrying big bags.

    The information is gathered not just from the owners of the businesses in question, but also from the Google Maps community. In addition, information should be supplied gradually.

    AUGMENTED REALITY

    Since 2019, Google Maps has included an augmented reality navigation system to help you find your way around. This Live View has been enhanced by the addition of information about the surrounding areas.

    Google Maps now overlays information about pointed places when traveling in Live View mode. By pointing your smartphone at the sign, you can immediately check which eateries in your area have the highest ratings.

    This feature is presently only available in a few places, including London, Los Angeles, New York, San Francisco, Tokyo, and… Paris. For the first time.
