Google Maps now Can Give Suggestions Nearby Parking Places to Users

Google Maps presents the recommended parking space closest to the user's destination. For example, if the user wants to go to a park, once they are close to the park they want to go to, Maps can provide parking advice that might be used to park the vehicle.

Google Maps now Can Give Suggestions Nearby Parking Places to Users
As quoted from Phone Arena, Monday (09/24/2018), currently it is not clear the trial process carried out related to this parking feature.

However, maybe this feature will be more easily seen directly in the Google Maps application. Recommendations for parking will appear in the form of pop ups in the application when the user is halfway from the destination (with the help of navigation from Google Maps).

If the user chooses not to follow the parking lot's recommendations, the recommendations will disappear immediately. This parking lot notification can be seen on Maps, when the user is still halfway.

Next to the destination, there will be a P mark that is interpreted as the nearest parking place to the destination.
