The new AR search feature from Google is currently live for at least a few Android smartphones. See how to enable it below!
“View in 3D” is Google’s new feature that instead of showing you 2D images of random animals you are searching on their engine, it allows you to position the 3D images of them in your environment.
There are quite a great variety of animals available through the AR feature such as a lion, tiger, cat, bear, leopard, wolf, snake, horse, deer, turtle, cheetah, eagle and many more.
Get a glimpse of how it works in the screenshots below:
Another amazing example of this augmented reality technology was shown during the Google I/O 2019 event by placing a 3D version of a Great White Shark . That was quite an entrance!
“Now, when you search for something like ‘muscle flexion,’ you can view a 3D model built by Visible Body, right from the search results,” the company’s Aparna Chennapragada said on-stage during the event.
How does it work?
You just have to Google search the animal you are interested in and then look for the card that says “View in 3D”.
One more thing, in order to use this feature, your smartphone needs to supports ARCore. See if yours made the cut here.
The company believes it will prove especially useful for brands: “That way, you get a much better sense for things like what does the grip look like on the sole, or how they match with the rest of your clothes,” Chennapragada stated.
