After an extensive update of probably the most popular navigation software app on Android devices, Google has now introduced some innovations that make the map service even more versatile than already.

So there is now an “AR function Live View” with the exploration of unknown holiday regions made even more interesting.

Augmented reality “Live View” in Google Maps

One of the most innovative features in Google Maps is probably the function “Live View”, which is based on augmented reality technology. The AR function is used to show the user during navigation practical pointers indicating the direction to be taken.

In particular, for people with a rather moderate sense of orientation, who are a bit struggling with the standard navigation, the “Live View” function in Google Maps could be a real help, because here is enough a quick look to know where to go, rather than the road on the most quite clear display to look for.

According to Google, this feature has been successfully tested by Local Guides and selected Google Pixel owners.

Improved reservation function

For those who travel a lot, Google implemented another helpful tool.

Via the menu “My Places” – “Reservations” you will find a list of all planned trips. There you can then select any trip and directly display the flight and hotel reservations. Fortunately, this feature is also available offline, so you do not have to worry about bad internet connections that are still abundant in Germany ..

New timeline on Google Maps

Furthermore, Google has revised the function of the “timeline”, so that can be displayed over years, the visited places and shops.

This could prove to be quite useful if, for example, you can not remember the name of a restaurant after a long time, and perhaps want to go there again. As this list becomes more and more crowded over the course of time, the places visited can also be displayed by category (eg country, city, bar, restaurant, sight, etc.).

The lists collected in this way can later even be forwarded to friends and acquaintances.

Initially, the new timeline was introduced exclusively for Android users. An update for iOS but should follow.

Note:
Of course, the feature only works if you have enabled location history in the settings of your device.

In any case it will be interesting to see how Augmented Reality continues. Of course, Google is guaranteed to stay on the ball here and will continue to make everyday life easier for us with great features in the future.
