First, Google Maps leverages Global Positioning System to sense your basic location.
All in all, it doesn't look all that different to the demo Google had shown at last year's I/O (guides included). Google isn't expecting you to use this feature throughout the entire guidance but rather wants you to navigate complex intersections more easily.
Essentially one can point the camera in their real world surroundings and Google Maps will overlay navigation instructions on top of that. Google says the feature needs more testing before launching it to more users. Combining the camera to Maps will make finding locations easier.
Google Maps' AR navigation feature could come in handy for challenging directions, Engadget reported. The real-time feature is however not meant to be on at all times, as it drains battery and the app even reminds the user to turn the feature off once it knows where to go. WSJ got to preview the new experience, and according to the publication, you can simply open up Maps, hit the Start AR button, and Google Maps will guide you using the new system.
No date had been set for the testing phase or wider launch. This feature is also claimed to help users save the battery. However, the commercial release will only happen when the company is "completely satisfied that it's ready".

The actress says that prior to their releases, actresses like Alia Bhatt would send her film trailers saying, "Please watch it". I don't want to talk about it in the media. "I would like to react to her personally if she has any complaints".
In this way, the app creates a real-time and immersive navigation for the user based on what he sees around him.
The WSJ's David Pierce notes that the feature will likely end up on the AR glasses that many companies are now either working on or selling.
