Google Maps is one of the most reliable navigation apps available, and must be available on all smartphones, even if they are accompanied by a different default map.

Google adds a slew of stylish features to the app, making navigation better, whether you're driving, walking, or using public transport. 

But the app will soon have an amazing feature being tested: enhanced reality support (AR). 

AR will improve walking significantly with Google Maps.

We've all been there; we've all used Google Maps or other Maps apps to find our ways in a new city while traveling, or in a part of the city we do not know. 

Although they work most of the time, they may be a daunting process. 

Pay attention to the things around you, and follow the phone check to see if you are in the place you need.

With AR dawn, navigation in Google Maps will get even more fun. Walking directions will be overlaid with the highest living image of your surroundings.

You will not have to switch between looking at the phone and on the way forward. 


Google Maps will combine information from your phone's camera and GPS to show you wherever you are and where you need to turn.

A negative aspect of using Google Maps in walking directions is that it will use more battery life than normal navigation. 

But the Redditors who used it say that for walking directions, you only need to use it 5 to 10 seconds at a time. Redditor added that the application forces you to put your phone up to the next direction.

To enable Google Maps AR directions on your phone, you'll need to make sure that your device supports AR Core, and you're a beta test for Google Maps and a "local guide at least 5", according to Redditor.

The feature is not available everywhere, right now, so even if you're eligible to test it, you may not be able to. 

But editors from the United States, Turkey, the United Kingdom, Spain, Russia and Germany said they had already used it. 

It's not clear when this Google Maps feature will be published to all Android and iPhone users, but maps and navigation are the arena where enhanced reality makes a lot of sense.
