Google has launched its new app for the Muslims who prays facing towards Mecca – a city in Saudi Arabia. The technology giant has announced the launch of a new Qibla-finding service that uses the augmented reality to help users find the right direction of the Qibla in Mecca.
The Qibla Finder app provides accurate direction while pray – helping Muslims to get exact location to face when they are on the move.
“It would be a lot easier to simply hold up your phone and have it tell you the right direction to pray towards. So we’re launching the Qibla Finder (g.co/QiblaFinder), a web app that uses the latest in augmented reality to paint a clear blue line within the imagery your phone camera sees, pointing you towards the Kaaba,” says Najeeb Jarrar, Marketing Manager for Middle and North America, Google.

The service is available on web browser and Google said it will still be available long after Ramadan. You can also explore Ramadan Hub(g.co/Ramadan) to get more about the Qibla Finder and other features which will help you. It should run on all devices, but it may vary on different browsers.
