Google Map’s latest update will allow you to account for enroute traffic, search for parking spots and even help you park your car.
Google Maps offers satellite imagery, street maps, 360° panoramic views of streets (Street View), real-time traffic conditions (Google Traffic), and route planning for traveling by foot, car, bicycle (in beta), or public transportation.

Google is looking towards adding a whole new bunch of functions to its Map. Not only will the latter inform users of the traffic to be expected but it will also search and save the parking spots around the city.

While, Google can’t actively track open spaces for parking; they will merely be informing users of the total number of spaces available in the area.

 

Moreover, the new update will also fix the issue where you accidentally reorient the map with a finger swipe. This beta includes an "Always point North" option that effectively locks the compass and prevents the map from turning.

These updates will only be confirmed after the official release.
