When users hold their phones and point them at the world, the ‘Live View” will display information such as ATMs and coffee shops.(Google will add AR Live View feature to Maps)
To find landmarks, users simply need to tap on the Camera button in the Maps Search Bar.
In September, the company revealed details about Search with Live View.
Users can also set a “fast charge” filter to help them find stations with 50kW chargers and higher. (Google will add AR Live View feature to Maps)
Google is also making its ‘accessible places’ feature available globally, which allows users to see if a destination on Maps is wheelchair-accessible.
