Google Maps is the American tech giant's navigation software that is available on desktops in addition to Android and iOS devices.

Such a feature will surely be extremely helpful for those that own electric cars.

Users of the Google Maps app on both iPhones and Android phones will be able to use the functionality to find their nearest EV charging station, starting today.

Google explained the new feature can be harnessed by entering relevant keywords into the Maps search bar. And finally, in the United Kingdom Google Maps users can find charging station location from Pod Point and Chargemaster.

Users will also have the opportunity to add reviews, photos and rating for each EV charging station on the map. It will also tell you what types of ports are available, how many there are as well as the station's charging speeds, and businesses with charging stations will now have a link that will lead you to more information about their setup.

Google outlined the specific charging stations that can be located in different territories.

United Kingdom users will also get information about Chargemaster and Pod Point Stations.

The Desktop version of Google Maps will receive this new feature soon.
