Google Introduces New “Immersive Vision” for Navigation

Google recently announced a new feature called “Immersive Vision” for the Google Maps application. This technology uses artificial intelligence to construct 3D images of landmarks, restaurants, and specific buildings based on flat photographs. This provides users with a better understanding of what to expect at a particular location.

The new 3D experience will soon be available to users during navigation. Starting this week, it will cover 15 cities for driving, walking, and biking. Instead of the traditional satellite map or Google Street View, users will be able to utilize a hybrid version of both views in a 3D format, displaying the entire route.

The included cities are Amsterdam, Barcelona, Dublin, Florence, Las Vegas, London, Los Angeles, Miami, New York, Paris, San Francisco, San Jose, Seattle, Tokyo, and Venice. If you’re planning ahead, there is also a slider that allows you to view the route at different times of the day, with a weather forecast projection – all thanks to artificial intelligence.

Google is also introducing some new functionalities that make Maps function more like a general search. Instead of searching for a specific place or address, you can now use general searches such as “artistic things nearby” or “cafes with artistic latte nearby.” The first option will display local attractions categorized on a scrollable list, while the second option searches based on user-posted photos, displaying places where those photos were taken.

To utilize this functionality, simply visit the Google Maps application on your Android or iOS device, open a specific location in one of the supported cities, and click on the “Immersive Vision” button to activate it.

In addition, “Lens in Maps,” an augmented reality search feature, is now available in over 50 new cities. With this functionality, users can quickly explore their surroundings by tapping the Lens icon in the search bar and lifting their phone to look around. On supported locations, it will display ATMs, bus and train stations, shops, restaurants, cafes, and much more.
