Google is adding EV charging maps to iPhone and Android app

That assistance comes in the form of Google Maps which, beginning today, will show EV charging stations within the app. Now, Google's done something about it.

Globally, the search results within Google Maps support charging stations from Tesla and Chargepoint.

Going further, the search results will show information about the business where the charging station is location, what kind of charging ports are available, the number of ports available for visitors, charging speeds, and more.

Users will be able to supply their own information, too. If you're located in the US, you'll be able to find SemaConnect, EVgo, and Blink stations; for Uk drivers, you can find Chargemaster and Pod Point stations; and finally for anyone residing in Australia or New Zealand, you'll be able to locate any and all Chargefox stations.

A new Google Maps update means electric auto owners will now be able to find the nearest charge point to replenish the batteries in their ultra-low emissions vehicles. The US's SemaConnect, EVgo, and Blink are supported, while the UK's Chargemaster and Pod Point will be available for overseas users. Businesses with a charging station will feature a link that provides more information about their chargers. United Kingdom users will have access to Chargemaster and Pod Point stations, while Australia and New Zealand EV drivers will see info on Chargefox stations.

The new feature will be available worldwide on Android and iOS at first - make sure you've got the latest app version installed on your devices.

However, the Mountain View firm will be adding the fresh functionality to computers in the "coming weeks".
