A year ago, Google Maps presented “Live View” AR navigation that visually guides you to an area utilizing your telephone’s camera. The component is still somewhat hard to discover, however, so Google is trying an element that makes it increasingly obvious. In the most recent beta rendition, Maps puts a floating action button (FAB) for Live View upfront when you look for or choose an area, as per 9to5Google. This is immensely helpful for people who are not good at reading maps.
Tapping on the button will dispatch the camera that shows the distance and heading to an area comparative with your position. An arrow will manage you to move your telephone until you’re pointing the correct way, with the last goal set apart by an enormous floating pin. A card at the base of the screen will at that point brief you to begin your AR-guided route.
This framework will make it a lot simpler for people to begin with their route, especially in the event that they exit from an underground metro station. As opposed to strolling a hundred yards off course, you can just sort in your destination, click on the Live View button and turn around until your destination shows up. At that point, you can begin strolling or riding the correct way, right away.
The standard Live View provisos apply – when you begin strolling, the AR interface vanishes so you don’t get focused on your telephone and stroll into the road without looking. This updated Live View include is quite liable to show up soon, as it’s on the Google Maps guide, yet for the present, it’s still in beta.
