ARCore, Google's augmented reality platform for Android, is rumored to arrive to more smartphones sooner than later. The first preview was released in August and the second preview arrived in December.
Android Oreo (Go Edition) was announced late past year as a new lightweight Android version optimised for low-end smartphones. The new set of apps could be available on 100 million phones, plus some upcoming devices.
But Google isn't stopping there.
Google's AI camera feature, Google Lens, is expanding to more devices.
As for Google's Lens app, the big news arrives from the availability front.
Apart from that, Google already started making their Android One platform and also the company is keen to have some new partners. With Nougat, the developers have reached a respectable position on par with iOS but Google is not going to stop there. Google said more devices will be approved in the coming months. ARCore apps will either overlay 3D objects on top of the phone's camera feed, or allow you to use the phone as a camera in a 3D world, moving your viewpoint around as you move the phone. The program details several common requirements for smartphone devices and services that are backed by a rigorous testing process carried out by Google itself. The update will also be available for English-language users in Canada, U.S., U.K., Germany, Australia, France, India, Italy, Spain and Singapore.
Since launch, Google has added text selection features, the ability to create contacts and events from a photo in one tap, and other improvements to Lens. Developers who have been building AR apps with it can now publish their work to the Google Play Store. Ever since the time of Kit Kat OS, the smartphone operating system is user-friendly, has received lots of unbelievable features and is much better than it used to be.
