A HUGE Android and iPhone update is coming as Google rolls out an incredible new feature.
Google Maps introduces an amazing live view to their location app.
The rollout of the update means users can point their phone in the direction they want and see the real world pop-up.
In hopes of making the app more useful, all buildings and streets are shown, making directions easier to follow.
As Google describes it, “You’re in New York and you want to shop and hang out with friends.
“Pick up your phone and tap the camera icon in the search bar to view nearby shops and other places like cafes, banks, and ATMs.
“With AR-powered directions and arrows, you can see which direction you’re in and how far you’re away – even spotting places that aren’t in your immediate line of sight (like a clothing store down the block) for a true picture.” to get a sense of neighborhood at a glance.”
Limited to a handful of cities, you can only access the live feature in London, Los Angeles, New York, Paris, San Francisco and Tokyo.
Google hasn’t announced any plans for additional locations just yet – but it’s understood they will once it’s tested.
It comes as Google also unveils a new EV charging station finder.

And a location doesn’t already have this information, you can add it yourself.
