Today, we’re thrilled to announce that we’re expanding it to more people. Live View is now available on ARCore and ARKit enabled devices in locations where we have Street View.

With Live View, you can use augmented reality (AR) to better understand which way to go. Arrows and directions are placed in the real world to guide your way, helping you identify exactly where to make those tricky turns or which way to start your walking journey.

To use Live View, simply choose your destination in Google Maps and tap the Directions button. From there, make sure to choose the Walking tab as Live View is only available for walking navigation. Make sure you're outside in a well-lit area to get started. You'll see the Live View button next to the Start button. Go ahead and tap the Live View button and follow the onboarding tips. 

There’s still more work to be done to improve this feature. However, given the positive feedback we received from the Local Guides community, we’re hopeful that Live View, even in its beta form, can help people in those crucial moments when GPS and compass simply don’t cut it. 

Please share your feedback and experiences in via in-app feedback or in Google Maps help forum. We’ll be monitoring all of the feedback closely to help inform what to prioritize as we continue to improve the product.
