Google Maps adds EV charging station info

Google Maps will now show EV charging stations

"In addition, businesses that have charging stations will now feature a link to information about the chargers".

New features are consistently added to the app thanks to updates from Google. So of course Google is going to try and help with finding charging stations as people drive from one location to another.

Google continued: "To help you make a quick decision about which station to use, we'll show you information about the business where the station is located, the types of ports available, charging speeds, and how many ports there are".

Google Maps will also show pictures, individual comments, ratings and reviews related to each location.

The new functionality will show Tesla and Chargepoint stations around the world; SemaConnect, EVgo, and Blink chargers in the US; Chargemaster and Pod Point stations in the United Kingdom; and Chargefox in Australia and New Zealand.

Globally, the search results within Google Maps support charging stations from Tesla and Chargepoint. The US's SemaConnect, EVgo, and Blink are supported, while the UK's Chargemaster and Pod Point will be available for overseas users.

Google Maps is gaining a feature that may prove to be of huge help for those with electric vehicles: information about electric charging stations.

Drivers in the USA will get access to details about SemaConnect, EVgo and Blink stations while Australia and New Zealand EV drivers will see information on Chargefox stations.

This enhanced searchability is rolling out on Android and iOS now, and is coming to desktop over the next few weeks.

The latest addition to Google Maps list of features benefits those who have opted to lessen their carbon footprint.
