Google arise AR navigation for Maps to beta users: Things are getting exciting in the world of Google Maps. The mapping service is getting an augmented reality (AR) navigation feature which is now being rolled out to some early users.
In the world of Google Maps, things are getting enhanced. The mapping service is facing an augmented reality (AR) navigation feature which is now being rising and shining to some early users.
As per the latest technology news, with the AR feature, navigation becomes all the more real and easier to execute. The features influence your phone’s camera to help you with navigation by overlapping information on what the camera sees around you
The concept is derived out of Google Glass that works without the eyewear. The early testers describe that the app picks up a person’s location via GPS and uses Street View data to zero for the precise location of the user.
Once your location is identified, it displays big, animated arrows, and directions on the screen making it look like certain directions are drawn onto the real world.
The feature is not designed to be used as the primary method of navigation. This does not allow you to use the camera continuously and is more for the user experience, for the moments when you don’t know where you should go first after getting off the subway.
Google will release out the feature to some of the Local Guides before offering it to the general public.
