Now, get the Bird’s Eye View on Google Maps with the all-new feature “immersive view on routes.” The feature was launched at Google I/O 2023, along with other AI features like Bard. It will initially implement in 15 cities, including London.
The “Immersive View on Routes” will provide the viewers with a 3D view and details on weather, traffic, street names, etc. It will help the users get a detailed view of their journey so they can pre-plan accordingly. It is right to consider it as Apple’s Flyover View’s advanced version. The users can now visualize all the landmarks, buildings, etc. while navigating their routes.
Bird’s eye view on Google Maps will also simulate traffic so that you can figure out what roads you are riding on and what alternative ways are available if a road is busy. Moreover, while driving, you can see your vehicle moving, which vehicles are blocking you, and if there is any way to go ahead with those vehicles to save time.
