Google Maps AR navigation coming first to Local Guides as UI detailed in first look

While real-time Google Lens was the big augmented reality announcement at I/O 2018, another exciting in-development feature was teased. Google Maps is working to leverage the camera to overlay walking directions, business listings, and other helpful guides. A first look today details the interface and that’s it coming first to beta testers

The Wall Street Journal had hands-on time with the upcoming AR navigation feature. In Google Maps, locations will feature a new “Start AR” button — alongside the traditional “Directions” — that will launch the interface shown off at I/O.

Google Maps is the new social network

While Twitter tumbles and Facebook flounders, Google Maps has emerged as the best social network for businesses

What is a social network, anyway?

To a consumer, a social network might be a place to share memes, cat photos and selfies.

But to a business, a social network is a place to bolster and defend branding, share product information, interact with customers and participate in relevant conversations with the world.

9 handy hidden features for Google Maps on Android

Take advantage of all Maps has to offer by tapping into these easily overlooked features and options

Who doesn’t love Google Maps? The native Android app helps those of us with oatmeal for brains find our way anywhere, without having to fire any neurons or exercise any synapses. It even helps us find places to pick up tasty cuisine — like, uh, oatmeal (yum!).

But there’s much more to Google Maps than meets the eye — and odds are, you aren’t taking advantage of at least a few handy hidden features lurking in the Android app. With word that Google is now apparently testing Waze-like crash and speed test reporting within Maps, I thought it’d be a fine time to think through some of the app’s existing advanced options.

Take a few minutes to explore these out-of-the-way possibilities the next time you’re using Maps to explore the world.
