Back at Google I / O 2019, the company revealed it would add artifacts from Augmented Reality ( AR) to the Google quest. Google has since introduced a lot of interactive 3D objects, but the most interesting is the animals in Google’s AR.
Google’s 3D animal feature has been a blessing for many parents who have been searching for ways to fill the day, following the coronavirus shutdown and school closures since being forced into home school duties.
The best thing about the latest feature for Google is that you don’t need a Pixel phone to make it work. It will operate on any smartphone, because it’s either an Android device or an iPhone.
To view 3D objects in AR, Google says you’ll need:
- Android smartphone or tablet running Android 7.0 or higher
- iPhone or iPad running iOS 11.0 or higher
Note: Google’s 3D objects in AR can’t be viewed from a desktop or laptop.
