Google adds AR functionality to the Maps application to help people move more easily and improve overall browser experience.
The new feature debuts much earlier for a limited number of users, but now it reaches more people.
The New Google Maps Feature Allows you to Navigate the Expanded Reality
However, you cannot use AR browsing, as it is only extended to local directories, people who choose the Google community evaluation feature in Maps.
The company talked about the AR feature that says it is still in the early stages of testing.
How it Works:-
It will allow you to walk up the phone, see the street with your camera’s camera and find the location you want to visit.
The camera screen will ask you to turn to the destination and guide you step by step using the AR features.
While AR navigation is still far from practical, Google, by wiping it out to some users, shows that it can soon become a reality.
However, nothing changed about how the rest of the application works. Google Maps will continue to rely on your phone’s GPS and data / Wi-Fi to find your location, but this time it uses the camera to show your 3D arrows on the screen to guide you to the exact location.
The feature is not intended to replace the main functionality. It is only used to get out of difficult situations like busy streets or to find a small store in a big city with tall buildings.
Google even added a feature to avoid the prolonged use of AR navigation. The screen will be muted after using AR navigation for a while, so users do not trust too much and meet other people.
The application also prevents users from using the feature too long to save battery, processing capacity and data from their phone.
The AR navigation is still going on, so you can’t try it yet, unless of course you are a local guide.
