Essentially one can point the camera in their real world surroundings and Google Maps will overlay navigation instructions on top of that.
Google Maps' augmented reality (AR) navigation feature is finally being tested by some early users, however, it's not available to everyone yet.
Tech giants like Apple, Facebook, Google, North, Vuzix and others have all been working on, or are selling their own AR glasses, meaning that Google's new feature could eventually make its way into your line of sight, the report added. You can simply hold your phone up and Google Maps will give you actual directions in the real world, and the idea is pretty cool for sure. It's like Street View for navigation. After it has done this, it then creates directions for the user based on the location.
Though Google is yet to announce the launch date of the AR feature, the report said that it will be launched "only when Google is satisfied that it's ready". It will prompt users to put it down after a short while. On the bottom of the screen, you can find regular overhead maps. This feature is also claimed to help users save the battery.
As pointed out this feature was first shown at Google's I/O developer conference last year in May 2018, but has not officially rolled out, and it has been close to a year since it was announced.
Surprisingly though, Google doesn't want you to depend on AR too much when you're on trips. This would be useful especially for those who were new to a city or needed guidance when walking around.
While navigation by way of Google Maps is, for the most part, a smooth process for pedestrians, there's usually an awkward moment of failed orientation when you first start the feature and try and line yourself up with the little blue dot.
