ARCore adds support for Galaxy Note9 and Tab S4, Xperia XZ2 line, and Nokia 6.1 Plus

Monday, August 20th, 2018

ARCore's list of supported devices was just updated earlier this month, but with the introductions of so many new Android devices, a second revision for the month of August was required. Samsung's latest and greatest, the Galaxy Note9 and Galaxy Tab S4, are present, as are all three members of the Xperia XZ2 line and the Nokia 6.1 Plus.

Here's the list:

  • Nokia 6.1 Plus
  • Samsung Galaxy Note9
  • Samsung Galaxy Tab S4
  • Sony Xperia XZ2
  • Sony Xperia XZ2 Compact
  • Sony Xperia XZ2 Premium

None of these devices are really surprising to see here, but it's worth noting that the Xperia XZ2 phones must have Android 8.0 Oreo with the August 5th, 2018 security patch or later.

22 new and notable augmented reality apps and games from the last four months (3/24/18 – 7/30/18)

Monday, July 30th, 2018

There was a huge uptick of augmented reality apps and games released on the Play Store back in March that was a result of ARCore's expanded device support. AP covered both the games and apps published at the time, but I wanted to keep track of further releases just to see if we could keep these AR roundups going. It may have taken four months, but I finally have a solid AR roundup for all of our readers.

Google’s formerly Tango-only Measure comes to ARCore devices [APK Download]

Thursday, June 21st, 2018

Google Measure, an app that — get this — lets you measure things, debuted in 2016 as a Tango exclusive. But with advances in augmented reality tech in more mainstream handsets, a lot of things only Tango could do are trickling down to devices regular people use. That includes Measure, which is now compatible with ARCore devices.

If you're familiar with AR, the experience is pretty simple: place two markers in real-world locations and get the distance between the two.

The team behind AR at Google is working hard to bring support to an ever-growing number of phones. While the initial launch was limited to Pixel and S8 phones, it quickly grew beyond that number. Still, most of the early phones were flagships or at least on the higher end of mid-range. With the latest update, we're now seeing ARCore expanding to some budget handsets.

Just a Line gets promised collaborative update, goes cross-platform [APK Download]

Wednesday, May 30th, 2018

Google released augmented reality doodling app Just a Line back in March. The neat (if frivolous) app lets you draw shapes in the air that realistically float in place as you move around them, looking through your phone's display. Now, two users are able to share one doodling space across separate devices — even if one is an Android phone and the other is an iPhone.

The update was teased at Google I/O this year and made possible on Android by ARCore v1.2, along with what Google calls Cloud Anchors.

Tuesday, May 29th, 2018

Xiaomi's latest bezel-less phone, the Mi MIX 2S, was first announced in late March with a 5.99" 1080p IPS LCD panel. Starting today, that panel can be used for ARCore apps. Despite the phone being sold in China, this support has been accomplished thanks to Google's partnership with the Xiaomi App Store, the first of its kind.

Update Notes for YouTube, YouTube Music, Play Store, Play Books, and Google Earth (May 19, 2018)

Saturday, May 19th, 2018

Every week, I examine somewhere in the neighborhood of a hundred app updates while looking for changes. The most interesting things turn into APK Teardowns or Download posts. Many of the remaining updates are unremarkable, amounting to a few bug fixes, routine updates to libraries, or even just pixel-level adjustments to layouts and images. However, there are usually a few updates that land somewhere in between. I don't want to spam readers with dozens of short posts, but I hate to ignore things that people might want to know about, so I'm going to wrap up the leftovers for a little weekend reading and call it Update Notes.

ARCore v1.2 gives devs new tools to create collaborative AR experiences [APK Download]

Friday, May 11th, 2018

While smartphones are increasingly our conduit for experiencing the latest cutting-edge tech, there's a big difference between checking out something that makes for an impressive tech demo, and seeing that technology evolve into something that actually makes the apps you care about better, more capable, or maybe just more fun to use. Augmented reality has slowly been working to prove it's up for making that transition, thanks in no small part to Google pivoting away from the hardware-based Tango and to its software-centric ARCore platform.
