Greetings from Mi community Bangladesh Tech Team. Google’s big bet on augmented reality is in Maps. AR walking directions rolled out to Android and iOS last year, with more features on the way. GPS can be flaky in dense urban areas, but Google has a solution. The Live View AR feature from walking navigation is now available as an option to calibrate your location and orientation. The option is a bit hidden, though.
Assalamu Alaikum Dear Mi Fans
The Live View option is available in the blue dot in Maps. Just tap the blue dot signifying your location to bring up options for sharing your location, setting a parking spot, and down at the bottom is the new "Calibrate with Live View" option. The first time you use it, you'll have to grant Maps access to your camera and tap through some tutorial pages.

Tapping the blue circle will open a full-screen menu with the new option at the bottom under “Save your parking.” This will launch the same camera UI used by Live View and should only take a few seconds of panning. Simply sweep the phone around you, allowing the AI magic to take in the surroundings and refine your location. The "beam" emanating from the blue dot that indicates the direction you're facing should also shrink.
Calibrate with Live View is live on several ARCore-compatible Android devices this features today running the latest stable and beta versions of Google Maps. It is not available on iOS.
