Google introduced a new augmented reality (AR) mode for Maps at I/O 2018 and it was one of the biggest crowd-pleasers at the keynote a year ago.
The new app will use the phone's lens to scan buildings and landmarks and direct users based on what they see in front of them rather than by looking at the blue dot is on a Google map. Combining the camera to Maps will make finding locations easier. Go to 9:41 in the video below to see the feature in action.

The company has not officially announced when the AR feature will out to all Google Maps users, with WSJ saying this will only happen when the company is sure that the feature is "ready". The idea is to help users with short-term directions. The first is that a big advantage of the feature is that it provides people with very specific location data, and that it's a feature that isn't likely to remain on phones, but on AR-capable glasses. Later this year, his voice will come to the Google Assistant. A traditional map will still be shown at the bottom of your screen so you can have a bird's eye view of where you're headed.
The current version of the new feature entails the users holding the camera up and pointing it to nearby points, and according to the report it took barely "few seconds" to figure out the location "with remarkable precision".
