In 2017, a few members of the Creative Lab joined the Google Maps Search & Explore team for a 2-day sprint on the future of AR within maps. What resulted was an idea for viewing real-time walking directions through a device camera. The following weeks were spent mapping out the experience and creating video prototypes. The Maps team of engineers and designers then spent the next two years turning the feature into a reality as it was announced at Google I/O 2019.
