Google Maps Live View: All you need to know

by August 8, 2019 0 comments

From the past couple of years, Google has been working hard to make its navigation app – Maps more useful and helpful for everyone. Google earlier showcased that it will roll out walking directions based on augmented reality, and the feature is now available to all.

The feature known as Google Maps Live View is great for users who love to explore the city on foot but hardly remember the directions. With Live View, you can use augmented reality (AR) to better see which way to walk. Google Maps now places Arrows and directions in the real world to guide your way. After testing the ‘Live View’ with the Local Guides and Pixel community over the past few months, Google is now expanding the beta Live View to Android and iOS devices that support ARCore and ARKit.

Thus, Android devices that support ARCore or iPhones that support or include the ARKit support are now able to access Google Maps Live View in beta. Here is how you can test out Live View.

Open Maps and feed in a location where you want to go. Then click on the directions button located at the bottom and then select walking directions at the top of the screen. Then click on the ‘Live View’ option which is positioned at the bottom of the app’s screen.

With the Maps Live View feature, Google wants its Maps service to be the one-stop destination for all your trip – from start to finish.

Google recently redesigned its Maps app with a new Explore page and included an ‘Offers’ section to help you discover local offers, starting with restaurants.
