Google has announced the deployment of a particularly useful functionality in its web mapping service, which will make it much easier for wheelchair users to see accessibility information.

To take advantage of the new functionality, download the latest version of Google Maps, go to settings, accessibility, and activate "Accessible Places". The new feature is rolled out for both Android and iOS in Australia, Japan, the UK, and the US. Other countries will soon follow.
