All phones compatible with ARCore, Google’s augmented reality for Android

1387

In August 2017, Google took a more than necessary leap in its augmented reality-oriented division. What until then was known as Project Tango, and was nothing more than a project in its infancy, only compatible with a very limited number of devices, became ARCore, a much more consolidated platform with which to stand up to Apple’s ARKit, offering a wide range of compatible devices and new tools for developers to create increasingly advanced applications and experiences.

Today, ARCore is already compatible with many different Android mobiles and even with the latest Apple iPhone models. In this article, we show you which devices Google’s augmented reality platform works on and how to use it.

First of all, what is ARCore?

According to Google itself, ARCore is a platform designed to create quality augmented reality experiences. Thanks to different APIs, developers can take advantage of device resources to make users “feel” the environment, understand and interact with the information.

To function, ARCore relies on two basic principles: first, monitoring the device’s position and its movements and creating its own understanding of the real world. To carry out movement tracking, ARCore uses the phone’s camera to identify different points and monitors them to record how they move.

In this way, it is possible to determine both the position and the orientation of the phone. In addition, it is capable of detecting flat surfaces and estimating the illumination of the area in which the device is located.
