Qibla : Google has launched a new Qibla-finding service to help users in finding the right direction of the Qibla in Makkah. Celebrating this month of Ramzan, Google Qibla Finder web app uses the latest Qibla Finder to assist in directing to Qibla in Makkah.
This new web app service is accessible through mobile browsers and enables anyone to use the service on any mobile model. User needs to enable the Qibla Finder app to identify their location.
The web app makes use of augmented reality technology on Android devices to a clear blue line in the imagery the phone camera sees. This imaginary line points the Kaaba without saving any pictures or imagery. Similarly, the service works on iOS devices as well but without the imagery.
“When people search for the Qibla, they often look for a website or an app to point them in the right direction. This explains why the word “compass” often pops up when we look at Qibla-related search results over the past five years. That is why Google is launching the Qibla Finder, to make it simpler for our users to easily find the right direction to pray towards wherever they are in the world,” says a spokesperson.
This Google Qibla Finder will also be available after Ramadan and will be updated to help users mark the month. This updates from Google include a collection of discounts on the Google Play Store on top premium applications and books, Ramadan-specific notifications on Google Maps, also the collection of the month’s most critically acclaimed Ramadan TV series on YouTube Mosalsalat.
Google launched Ramzan hub back in 2014 to help users navigate the different ways Google can help them during Ramadan. The complete details about the Qibla Finder web app and the other updates are now available on Google’s Ramadan Hub.
