Google Maps has introduced a new feature that will help people in wheelchair know of places accessible to them.

With the new feature, users will be able to see the wheelchair icon on the map display along with other vehicles. Clicking on it will provide information about wheelchair access. At the same time you can know where the seating arrangement or rest room is. 

The feature will initially be available in Australia, Japan, the United Kingdom and the United States. However, Google said that it will be launched in other countries of the world in a few days. Google Maps has already identified 15 million wheelchair accessible places.
