You can't use the AR view consistently; the app will ask you to put the phone down after awhile.

All in all, it doesn't look all that different to the demo Google had shown at last year's I/O (guides included). In an article, "It's the Real World-With Google Maps Layered on Top", he has described how the feature works. The operating system's four new incredible features will help you plan your lives better and indulge in meaningful engagement.Dashboard in Andoid P will give you access to a chart of apps you are engaging in and the activities within a certain app.With the app-timer mode, your smartphone will nudge you when you are close to your limit of using one particular app, after which it will turn grey for the rest of the day to remind you of your goals.If you enable the new do not disturb "Shush" mode and keep your phone upside down, it will halt all notifications.

Author David Pierce states that Google has only made the feature available to some users for testing at the moment and expects a wider release "later", as some aspects of the user interface still need refinement. Google says the feature needs “more testing” before launching it to more users. Go to 9:41 in the video below to see the feature in action.

On Sunday, Google told The Wall Street Journal that the AR navigation feature, which gives real-time views for directions, will be rolled out soon. After it has done this, it then creates directions for the user based on the location. Combining the camera to Maps will make finding locations easier.

The feature will likely also be available through AR glasses in the future.
