Google Maps Testing Augmented Reality Street View

Posted by at 6:27 pm on February 11, 2019


Google has Maps and Street View, but the company is finally rolling out a mixture of both. Navigation with Augmented Reality is reportedly being pushed to Local Guides, a group of people that are community reviewers inside the Maps platform. Google says the feature needs “more testing” before launching it to more users.

The app works quite simple – when you start it, Google wants you to look around to recognize the buildings around you and from then on you just follow the arrows. There is also a prompt to put the phone down when you’re walking to avoid walking into things.

You get a video taste of Google’s plans from a story by the WSJ.
