Available today, Nokia has released an update to its Nokia Maps app that integrates with the company’s LiveSight augmented-reality feature, a feature previously only accessible via the CityLens app.

LiveSight brings together nearby locations along with relevant information such as the type of business it is, the hours, the address and phone number, and customer ratings.

Users can access LiveSight mode through the app bar (Places). Once activated (you may need to correct the compass on your phone), you’ll see the points of interest either overlaid on the standard map or in a mode that resembles Google’s Street View. It also works when you’re offline.
