After being available for only some of the users that participated in the beta test, and after having been an exclusive user in possession of a smartphone Pixels, Google Maps AR with the mode “Live View” augmented reality is available for everyone on both Android that on iOS.

The operation of the new function is simple enough. Once the Google Maps knows exactly where the user is located using GPS, the app combines the view from the camera to the information of the Street View stored on Google's servers. Following the huge arrows that give directions, it is possible to arrive at the correct destination. Google says that the AR function should not be used while driving, and it is logical, since that requires a further opportunity to focus on where it should go.

The developer behind the project of using Google Maps AR, Rachel Inman, says that this system is for when you have to walk in a city that does not know very well. Among other things, if you port the smartphone in a horizontal position, the mode AR you off to get back to the standard user interface of Google Maps.

To prevent users from paying too much attention to the screen in front of them and have an accident, Google Maps, remind them to put down the smartphone every now and then. If the user does not take into account such a warning, the screen dims automatically. It is also to prevent the battery from discharging too much.

On the front of compatibility, Google claims it can access Google Maps AR only those who have a compatible smartphone with ARCore or, in the case of ioS, an iPhone compatible with ARKit.
