Google Maps Live View will let you use AR to explore big cities like New York

A new Google Maps update will allow you to use augmented reality (AR) to explore important places in major cities.

The feature is called Live View and it was first suggested in september during Google’s Search On 22 event. When you tap the new camera icon in the Maps search bar, a series of AR dots will appear on the screen, highlighting landmarks, stores, and even ATMs. All you have to do is point your smartphone camera at the surrounding area. These dots tell you how far away a business is and in which direction. And locations that are not in your immediate view will also be highlighted, according to the ad (opens in new tab)🇧🇷
