Google roll out the AR maps now



Google last year May announce the AR Maps for Google Maps to user find Correct location.

Google started rolling out AR Maps on Monday to a small subset of Google Local Guides, people that have volunteered to add things like photos and reviews to Maps. The new feature is designed to help pedestrians navigate around cities by showing them digital street signs and virtual arrows overlaid on the sidewalk to show which way to walk.



Users hold their phone up in front of them so they can view an AR version of Maps. It’s supposed to solve the problem many people run into when using an online map to navigate: Which direction to go a right turn, for example—isn’t always apparent.

To avoid accidents, on-screen prompt encourages users to put the phone down after being shown the correct route so they can pay attention to their surroundings.
