Google Maps beta for Android Community Report 📲 Google Pixel XL 2, Android 8.1.0

Google Maps for Android was updated recently to v10.2.1 and got a new changelog. This is not a very common case b/c most of Google Maps updates don't have any information about new features.

What was updated?

Google Maps team highlighted a new search functionality which allows you to search for EV chargers in the area around. Here is the full changelog:

WHAT’S NEW

Thanks for using Google Maps! With this release, you can now search for EV charging stations on the map – so you can be confident that your car will be charged and ready for your ride, no matter where you’re headed. Become a beta tester: http://goo.gl/vLUcaJ

Now you can simply search for "EV chargers" (I also had this search query as a suggestion) and you will see Electrical charging station icons on the map. Additionally, you can see opening times and other local details. This feature sounds very useful for Electric car owners.

This change is most probably not the only one but it was the only highlighted one. Did you spot any others?
