Google has announced several new features coming to the Google Maps app. One of them will help you navigate in premises such as airports, shopping malls and train stations using augmented reality.

A new feature in Google Maps, called Live View AR, overlays digital markers over the real world to indicate directions. For example, if you are at an airport, simply indicate what you are looking for in Google Maps and the markers will guide you with arrows and other digital indicators.

Live View was first launched for Android and iPhone in 2019, but was initially limited to streets only. This feature can be accessed by searching for something in Google Maps on your phone, tapping Directions, and then, if available, tapping the Live View option next to Start.

This new feature, called Live View AR, is available in various shopping malls in Chicago, Long Island, New York, Los Angeles, Newark, New Jersey, San Francisco, San Jose, California and Seattle. In the coming months, the feature will also launch at airports, shopping malls and transit stations in Tokyo and Zurich. Over time, the list of cities and countries will be expanded.

The company says it will introduce other features for Google Maps in the coming months, including information on air quality, integration with grocery stores and the ability to choose the most sustainable route while driving.
