Technology giant Google has started rolling out a new feature that now permits the user to view their impending fights as well as their hotel reservation despite the fact that they are traveling. Google Maps now comes with a new reservation tab within the app that can be found in the ‘Your Place’ section. In addition, Google Maps is also spreading the accessibility of the Live View feature that makes use of the Augmented Reality to improve navigation. Along with the Live View feature the company has also accumulated a new restructured Timeline feature basically allows the user to create a list of places that they can share with their family as well as friends. This will help them out to plan their journey.
By bringing fresh reservations feature Google Maps will allow the user to track their flight and hotel reservations from one place. The user can get to the new Reservations Tab by tapping on the dedicated three grey lines placed on the top left corner of the phone’s screen after which the user can tap on the Select Your Places option then selecting the Reservations Tab. This will allow the user to view their future journey like flight timings along with hotel reservations for the trip. The Technology Giant has also confirmed that the new feature will arrive on both Android as well as iOS in a little while. In addition to this, the company also said that this feature works offline on top.
The search engine giant has already made this new feature available on the Google Pixel series of smartphones after I/O 2019 conference in May this year. Starting this week the company is planning to bring this new feature to Android as well as iOS devices that will be supporting ARCore along with ARKit. The new navigation feature brings into play the Phone’s camera for the duration of the navigation process that overlays augmented reality arrows in the world around the user that will help them reach their destination. This feature works when the user chooses ‘Walking’ as their preferred means of travel in the Maps.
The newly simplified Timeline feature allows the user to view all the places that they visited some time ago. In addition to this, the feature also segregates them into groups such as restaurants, shops, attractions, hotels, and airports. These can be exported into a customised list that permits the user to note down exactly what they liked about the places and then share this list with their family and friends. However, the company has confirmed that the said feature will also arrive soon to Android devices, but it has not confirmed that yet when the feature will be rolled out for the iOS devices.
