Google has launched a new augmented reality app that will make the lives of the Muslim world over a bit easier. The tech giant has launched Qibla Finder app during the holy month of Ramadan. The service can work in any web browser.
You can even use it on any Android or iOS mobile that have a compass. For Android devices, once you give the app the required permission to access device camera and location it turns on and draws a line of direction of Qibla. You can follow the line with your smartphone cameras. The service works similarly on IOS devices but without the imagery.
The new feature follows a service of updates to applications to help users mark the month of Ramadan. The updates include a collection of discounts on Google play store on premium applications and a lot more. All details about Qibla Finder and other updates are now available on Google’s Ramadan Hub so that Muslims around the world can take benefits in their holy month.
