Available to both iOS as well as Android phone users, the feature is available to you once you have updated to the latest version. Once you are in the app, a quick keyword search like “EV charging” or “EV charging stations” will bring up the nearest supported stations.
Desktop users will be to access the new feature in the coming weeks.
Google says the program is smart enough to show you the specific charging networks depending on which country you’re in. If you are in America, the app will show you SemaConnect, EVgo and Blink stations while U.K. users will find that the app will bring you to a Chargemaster and Pod Point station. Globally, Tesla and Chargepoint stations will show up when you do a search.
Of course, local users will likely be directed to the nearest BlueSG station.
In addition, Google will also tell you the types of ports available, charging speeds, and how many ports there are. However, the app does not tell you how many charging points at the station are being used.
