Google has launched a new augmented reality (AR) navigation tool for Google Maps, which will guide you to your destination by superimposing arrows over real-world footage from your phone's camera. This includes the highly popular augmented reality navigation for non-Pixel Android smartphones, a tab specifically for your reservations, a way to share your Timeline, and more.
To use Live View, you'll need to tap the "Start AR" button and hold up your phone like a viewfinder. Today, Google has announced a handful of new features for its Google Maps app users. It was previously demoed last year, and has been available to Google Local Guides level 5 and up, as well as Pixel phone owners, but it's about te see a broader release later this month. 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. That makes it much, much easier to orient yourself in unfamiliar settings, which is hugely beneficial when traveling in unfamiliar territory.
Google outlined updates that will put your flight and hotel reservations in one place within Google Maps.
