Integrating this with Google Maps allow for augmented reality (AR) additions like floating arrows pointing you to the direction you need to head to. Describing his experience, he wrote, "It was as if Maps had drawn my directions onto the real world, though nobody else could see them".
That said, it looks like it won't be taking over as the standard method of using Google Maps. And so this new experience actually warns you to put your phone down, and only check the directions momentarily. The key point here is that, using AR, it will better know which way you are looking, without having to rely on the often hit and miss compass. On the bottom of the screen, you can find regular overhead maps. The AR system asks the user to move his/her phone around to determine the exact location. As it's not just a great idea, but also may be risky. To ensure it doesn't consume your battery and data allowance-and for safety reasons-users will be reminded to lower their phone if it's been held up too long. This move is also created to conserve battery power (and likely your sanity). Google also cautions that the feature is to be used for directions while walking and not to be used while driving, due to obvious distractions.
