Nokia updates “City Lens” with Sightline and Freeze view features. Demo video. Comes out of Beta.


Nokia has updated its augmented reality application “City Lens” with cool new features like Sightline and Freeze view. With this update the application also has come out of Beta and is now available at Windows Phone store. If you already have Nokia City Lens on your Nokia Lumia, you will soon automatically get the update. Check below for detailed changelog and demo video of new version of City Lens.

New Features:

  • New Sightline feature lets you switch your view to only what’s in your direct line of sight, making it easier to spot great places that are right in front of you. Please note that this feature is only available in supported areas, where we have already collected highly accurate, 3D data. In these cases, you will automatically see the filter icon in Nokia City Lens.

  • When scanning your surroundings in camera view, you can now freeze your view and study your options without having to keep your phone pointed at the target. Just tap and the screen “freezes,” letting you browse the scene more comfortably.

  • Nokia City Lens now lets you pin individual categories to your home screen, so you can jump directly to your favourite category searches with just a tap.

  • Now you can quickly view a place’s address without leaving your camera view. Just tap to view the information overlaid on your display while you keep scanning. When you’re ready to learn more about the place, another tap pulls up complete information of that place.
