Google Maps Now Provides Accessibility Information for Over 40 Million Places
October 24, 2018 / CMS Connected
Google has announced that Maps now provides accessibility information for more than 40 million listings. The company attributes this accomplishment to an initiative launched last year. In July 2017, Google started letting users add accessibility details to business listings. At that time, Google said accessibility information was available to roughly 7 million listings around the world. In a little over a year, that number has increased by over 30 million. This wasn’t all done by Google itself, the company explains. There are over 50 million Local Guides contributing information to Google Maps.
