Google’s AR Solution ARCore is finally getting launched this week at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona.
ARCore 1.0will allow developers to– in conjunction with Google lens — use phone cameras to build apps that overlay information over the world. Think Nokia’s Here City Lens, but more sophisticated, and available to more people.
“Developers can now publish AR apps to the Play Store, and it’s a great time to start building. ARCore works on 100 million Android smartphones, and advanced AR capabilities are available on all of these devices.” Google’s Anuj Gosalia explained,
AR core currently works on 100 million smartphones, including the Google’s Pixel, Pixel XL, Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL; Samsung’s Galaxy S8, S8+, Note8, S7 and S7 edge; LGE’s V30 and V30+ (Android O only); ASUS’s Zenfone AR; and OnePlus’s OnePlus 5 and will be coming to devices from Samsung, Huawei, LGE, Motorola, ASUS, Xiaomi, HMD/Nokia, ZTE, Sony Mobile, and Vivo later this year.
