Google is going far places in terms of technology. Whether it is Boston’s dynamic advanced robotics or self-driving cars or say Modular phones- Project ARA. Google has done everything u can imagine and anything you are yet to imagine.
Now Google is not just a search engine, it had traveled a distance and upright themselves to a futuristic organization. They literally make u feel how did the future look alike.
Google introduced google maps which changed the way people used to search for there directions and destination. It comes alive with a simple click on your mobile. You just need a working internet connection and a location access permission granted and whoop…there your go.
Still, Google didn’t stop there only. They introduced google street view which helps a user to see how actually is that place gonna be like? You can now see how the streets of NYC would be while sitting in a room in India(or anywhere). This made so much easier for users to interact with the Google Maps application. But still, it lacks somewhere a bit.
What makes Google go further for AR Maps update?
Let us take a situation where you are getting late for an interview let’s say and just off the metro. You turned on the regular Google Maps and then the blue marker(arrow) will guide you.
But hold on, it doesn’t look a reason to go for further technology up-gradation. So why did they go for AR maps?
The reason behind is that the blue arrow needs to be checked which direction is north or east. Google assistant will say to move North but dude you just came off the metro. You don’t even have an idea where the hell is North. So what we do is we step a bit steps in any direction just to get an idea of which direction we have to go.
But, buddy you are getting late. The scenario makes it difficult to reach the place of an interview in time.
So here comes the existence of Augmented Reality in picture. It superimposes the direction on your surroundings and let you put your very first step in the right directions. No more guessing. Simple! A lot more than simple.
How exactly will ‘Google AR Maps’ work?
Just like you take directions from Google Maps, it will take data like where to go, from where to start. Then it will fetch surroundings with the help of your camera.
If you ever had played Need For Speed game, you can picture it how its gonna look. Just like the series of arrow put as a signboard in game, it will gonna be in your screen. And boom, here you go. It will be convenient and effective.
It will even show you those explore options like Restaurants, bars, Attractions etc all live and in real-time.
Additional features in Google AR Maps
Google is adding up a fox feature to there Google AR Maps. An animated fox will get superimposed on the surroundings and will go ahead of you. You can imagine as you will be catching up that fox but he will running away from you. Kinda fun? Yeah, it will be fun. Just head up for AR Maps.
Currently, Google is testing this feature with some of the chosen tester users but it will change the way we are using Google Maps.
Do let us know what do you feel about this technology.
