Wheelchair accessibility to be made more prominent on Google Maps

A new mode will be made available on Google Maps called Accessible Places. When the feature is toggled on, wheelchair accessibility info will be made available. The feature will be released gradually for iOS as well as Android. An icon will indicate wherever wheelchair accessibility is available.
