Google Maps will receive AR geospatial content later this year

At its annual Google I/O 2024 conference, Google announced that users will soon be able to access geospatial augmented reality (AR) content directly on Google Maps on their phone. The feature will first appear in Singapore and Paris as part of a pilot program launching later this year.

Users will be able to access AR content by first searching for a location in Google Maps. If the location has AR content and the user is near the location, they will need to tap the image that says “AR Experience” and then lift their phone.

If someone explores a location remotely, they can see the same AR experience in Street View. After exploring AR content, users can share the experience via a deep link URL or QR code on social media.

In Singapore, users will be able to explore popular sites such as Singapore Chinatown and Gardens by the Bay, as well as sample local foods and watch a ceremonial dragon dance. In Paris, users will be able to see the scene of the field pavilions from the 1900 Universal Exhibition along the Seine and visualize the various modifications made to the famous Eiffel Tower.

Google says these AR capabilities lay the foundation for the extended reality (XR) platform it is building in collaboration with Samsung and Qualcomm for the Android ecosystem.
