Google Maps has a built-in AR mode called Live View that allows you to use your phone̵
Soon it will also overlay landmarks in 25 cities around the world. For example, it can help you find the Empire State Building in NYC or the Pantheon in Rome. Popular tourist attractions and other key areas in cities make it easy to navigate new areas with Live View.
The Live View feature also reaches the blended navigation interface, which allows you to combine things like walking and public transportation into a seamless navigation experience. Before long, you’ll be able to use Live View while walking navigation if you want.
Live View Location Sharing will soon be available for iOS and other Android phones as well. The Pixels Only feature allows users to share their location with friends and family, who can then use Live View to determine their exact location. The update also improves the accuracy of the dropped pin and makes it even easier to find precise positions using Live View.
The update will be available for both Android and iOS “in the coming weeks”.
