  • La navigation en réalité augmentée arrive dans Google Maps

La fonctionnalité, toujours en phase de test, avait d'abord été annoncée lors de la conférence Google I/O de mai 2018.

Une information relayée par The Wall Street Journal rapporte que certains utilisateurs ont eu la bonne surprise de pouvoir profiter de la navigation en réalité augmentée directement dans l'application Google Maps. Un fameux projet sur lequel la firme de Mountain View travaille sans relâche. L'écran sera divisé en deux parties, avec en haut la vue en réalité augmentée et en bas le plan en 2D pour apporter une vue plus complète des rues aux alentours. Une fonctionnalité très pratique lorsqu'on est à pied, mais qui peut s'avérer dangereuse au volant.
