According to Android Police, Google Maps seems to be rolling out a new feature that allows users to show parking information at a location. The extra feature seems to be part of the latest Google Maps v9.44 beta update to the application. The parking information shows up as small round “P” icon next to your destination, as shown in the images below.

You can expand the directions to get a more descriptive explanation of the parking situation. The icon appears to change to a red background when parking is not readily available at your destination. This parking icon shows up for public destinations including malls, airports, and popular attractions.

The new parking finder looks like a great feature to add to Google Maps, which has lately been adopting a lot of useful functionality.
