Google introduces live AR walking directions on Google Maps

"Live View" is a feature in Google Maps that uses augmented reality (AR) to show you which way to walk using arrows and directions placed in the real world, and it's rolling out to Android phones that support ARCore and iPhones that support ARKit.

"There's nothing like exploring a city on foot - it's a great way to take in the sights and sounds of a new place", the technology giant said in a blog post.

Google regularly updates its navigation app with new features while testing other novelties with the help of beta releases, and Google Maps keep getting better as a result. The notifications are in fact from Google Maps, as Google uses your reviews - if you provide them - so other people can decide whether that sushi bar or tourist attraction is any good.

Google has a number of ways to organize travel reservation data that has been sent to your email address.

AR navigation is now rolling out to our phones.

Sky even claim 'Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino phoned Coutinho in an effort to convince him to return to England'. As of yesterday, Tottenham had entered into talks with Barcelona to take Coutinho on loan for the upcoming season.


The feature has been renamed to Live View and will be available to users in places where Google's Street View is available. It first appeared on Pixel phones and showcased real-time navigation in Google Maps through the lenses of handsets.

For business travelers, the Google Maps integration with trips will be a handy feature a few times a year.

The navigational features overlap on top of the camera view and make it far easier to locate buildings and landmarks around you.

Use Google Maps to see all of your flight and hotel reservations in one place.

When you're in search of food, you'll find a new "Your Match" rating for individual restaurants that are listed in Google Maps.
