Google Maps for Android now predicts how busy the parking is at your destination – VentureBeat

This is a must have app if you do a lot of business in high traffic areas. It could help keep you on time for those important meetings by simply letting you know where parking lots are how limited the parking might be in each individual lot and how probable it is that you will find parking that will benefit you.

Key Takeaways:

  • Google Maps already helps you navigate your way from A-to-M-to-Z, guiding you with time estimates and re-routing based on current traffic conditions. Now, it’s about to help you circumvent the limited parking problem too.
  • Launching initially in 25 U.S. metro areas, Google Maps for Android will now use historical parking data to estimate how likely you’ll be to find a parking space at your destination.
  • In terms of how a user may use this data, well, it may encourage them to leave the house earlier to find a space, or they could go by public transport instead. Or they could stay at home and watch Netflix.
