Google Provides a New Service to Determine the Qiblah Direction
Google launched a new service in the name of “Qibla Direction” to know the direction of Qibla place to pray from anywhere in the world to the right place. The service will set the Qiblah direction for Muslim users.
The new service uses the latest enhanced reality technology to draw a clear blue line towards the Kaaba within the camera range of the smartphone.
To take advantage of the service, users must allow the identification and use of location on the smartphone to accurately set the direction of the Kaaba.
According to Google the service is currently available via the browser on Android phones and IOS, and is not limited to only the holy month of Ramadan where the service will remain available to users permanently.
The service depends on the smartphone compass where you are guided through your mobile camera to the right direction of the kiss.
