Microsoft Just Launched ‘Path Guide’ For Android

Nowadays we are much dependent on GPS, especially if we go to a new place we solely depend on the navigation system. But have you ever thought, what if you don't have an internet connection, then how will you find your destination?


Recently, Microsoft has launched an app that allows users to navigate the streets without using the GPS. The new app has been named as Path Guide which can be used for indoor navigation without switching on the GPS connectivity of your smartphone. This special feature is exclusively for the Android users.

The Path Guide app uses the sensors on your phone to record every moment in a particular area or even in the entire city.

No, you don't even have to depend on any Wi-Fi connectivity. Path Guide allows the Android users to produce maps of buildings and permits them to make these maps public, letting other users search their way throughout buildings.

Microsoft's path Guide can also be used in many situations such as recording every step you take and distance you traveled within the building. This app also permits users to record audio, notes, and images which will help others who use the map later.


Google Play Store describes Microsoft's Path Guide app as:
"Path Guide is a completely map-free, infrastructure-free, plug-and-play indoor navigation service. It exploits the ubiquitous geomagnetism and natural walking patterns to guide users to destinations along a path collected by an earlier traveler."
As of now the app is still under process and is predicted to become more intelligent with time. You can download the app from Google Store or APKMirror.
