Did you ever get late to your office just because you are not able to find a parking spot or you found one but it was too far from your office. Situations like that may become a thing of past because soon you will be able to find the location you are trying to visit and also the detailed directions on where you can find the nearest spot to park your car just by using Google Maps.
This is not a prediction. This is something you are gooing to be able to do on a daily basis with the upcoming beta version of the Google Maps. This upcoming version will be loaded with cool new features and one of happens to be offering the turn-by-turn directions for the safest open areas near you where you can park your vehicle.
Android Police has shared some exclusive new details about the beta version ‘v9.44.0’ of Google Maps that is to come. This runs on devices running on Android 4.3 and above and you can download it through an APK Mirror. The new version will come pre-loaded with driving directions for general parking spots along with the availability status of a certain spot and the distance and time estimates. If the app just shows you a tiny ‘P’ icon, that means you can park your car since the spot is available and open. The upcoming version will also display the likeliness of finding an open parking spot in a particular destination with options to range from Easy, Medium and or Limited.
It is worth noting that Google will be relying on conventional traffic patterns instead of location data, which is why the app may not clearly identify open parking spots as yet. However, the feature is in its evolutionary phases currently and we are sure that pretty soon it will be able to provide accurate guidance to users about open spots to park their vehicles. The feature may also become a lot more focused if Google decides to add its existing user tracking feature so that the Maps remain perfect in real-time too.
