At the 2019 I/O conference, Google announced that it would include augmented reality (AR) in its search, according tomedia. Now a year on, the search engine already has a bunch of 3D animals that users can view on Google using AR. For ease of access, Google put its 3D animals and other AR objects at the top of the search. For example, the search for tiger will display a Google Search Knowledge Panel.
It is understood that, in general, users may not see these AR or 3D objects on a desktop or laptop. Instead, it needs an AR-enabled smartphone.
Mainstream devices currently supported include:
Android smartphone or tablet: Run Android 7.0 or later/pre-installed Google Play Store
iPhone/iPad: iOS 11.0 or later
Specifically, the Android lineup includes Samsung’s Galaxy S8/S9/S10/S20, Note 8/9/10, any Google Pixel and LG, Motorola’s Android devices, and iOS devices include iPhone 6S, 7, 8, X and 11 models.
