Google Maps for walking directions, you’ve probably encountered a common problem. You can see the line indicating your route, but which direction should you start walking? You may walk in the wrong direction for a while before realizing your mistake. Google Maps is getting an AR mode that should make walking directions easier.
Google first showed off AR mode for Google Maps way back at Google I/O 2018. Finally, the company is letting select “local guides” try the feature in a preview version. David Pierce from the Wall Street Journal was able to take it for a spin and Google has shared a blog post outlining the technology.
