Google Maps is going to add one of the most anticipated feature that is Augmented reality. We all are experienced with Live View which is available on Maps but soon users will have the option to use the Live View Search in AR on Google Maps. This integration was talked earlier this year at the Google I/O keynote, further it was discussed in September and now by the end of November, users in select parts of the world will be able to enjoy its benefits.
Using AR allows Live View to show you the nearest restaurants, cafes and other buildings by simply pointing your phone’s camera and you will get all the details. You can also get details about the shops without standing in front of them, which can be handy on a busy street.
Maps will need access to your phone’s camera to make use of the Live View search feature in AR. Google is basically deriving all this data that has been collected via the Street View images and implementing its AI and AR technology to give you this unique experience.
