The latest Google Maps AR update should help you avoid getting lost while traveling


Google Maps’ Immersive Immersive View feature, which lets you virtually explore landmarks, is finally getting a major upgrade in five major cities around the world, making it easier to find your way around.

When the feature was announced at Google I/O 2022, Immersive View enabled people to virtually explore hundreds of landmarks, from the Tokyo Tower to the Acropolis of Athens. Using a mix of aerial and street views – along with some AI assistance – Immersive View can show you an accurate 3D model of the tourist destination, giving you an idea of ​​the location’s layout and size. It can also provide you with data from Google Maps, including visitor ratings, times when the location is usually busier and quieter, and what the weather is like.
