Foreign media explain how to search for 3D animals on Google and take stock of searchable lists

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.

这些面板通常都是用来展示电影、名人和其他主题。在Google 3D动物搜索例子中用户会看到被搜索动物的概述、一些图片及一个“近距离接触真人大小的老虎”的部分和一个“3D视图”按钮等。通过这个按钮用户可以启动AR体验。
