Google Maps has a new feature that will guide through the indoor spaces

March 31, 2021:-On Tuesday, Google announced several new features that will be in Google Maps. One such feature will help you find your way through indoor spaces such as airports, malls, and train stations using augmented reality.

The updated Live View AR feature, which overlays digital guides on top of the natural world to give directions as you see through your phone’s display, now works for indoor. For example, you’re in an airport and need to find an ATM. Your search for what you’re looking for in Google Maps and markers will guide you with arrows and other digital features.

Live View for Google Maps was launched for Android and iPhone in 2019, but it, in the beginning, it only provided these type of directions outdoors.

Anyone can access Live View in search in the Google maps on the phone, tapping “Directions,” and then, when available, tapping the “Live View” option beside “Start.”

Google said it’s first rolling out in some malls in Chicago, Long Island, Los Angeles, Newark, San Francisco, and Seattle. It will also launch in airports, malls, and transit stations in Tokyo and Zurich in the future months. Eventually, other cities and locations will support the feature too.

Google’s big maps update also includes different features that will roll out in the future months, such as air quality information, integration with grocery stores for curbside pickup, and an option to select the most eco-friendly route when driving.
