ARCore is the result of the Augmented Reality developments Google refined over the years through a project codenamed Tango. Developers who have been building AR apps with it can now publish their work to the Google Play Store.

Keen Android users who've been following a somewhat obscure Google Issue Tracker thread from November of past year celebrated an exciting new development today.

Announced in a blog post today, Google explained the "diversity" of Android devices available is good for customer choice but can be less desirable in enterprise IT departments. The more users adopt Pixel devices or upgrade to the latest version of Android, the better Google's artificial intelligence becomes - and augmented reality is a hot feature that could lure customers.

Another, separate feature request submitted to the Issue Tracker last month asked that Google add a weather widget to Android's always-on display feature. "Android Studio Beta now supports ARCore in the Emulator, so you can quickly test your app in a virtual environment right from your desktop".

Also, seems Nokia 8 users will be able to use camera-based Lens experience within the Google Assistant. Following two developer previews, ARCore will officially be exiting its experimental phase of development at Mobile World Congress 2018 scheduled to start next week, as was previously rumored.

There are already a handful of applications using ARCore, including a portal to FC Barcelona's Camp Nou stadium created by Snapchat, Sotheby's International Realty interior visualization tool, and an app that puts Porsche's Mission E concept vehicle in users' driveways. "As these technologies continue to grow, we'll see more ways that they can help people have fun and get more done on their phones". The new set of apps could be available on 100 million phones, plus some upcoming devices. It's still in preview, but since launch it's received text selection features and the ability to create contacts and events from a photo with one tap.

Lens will also get improved support for recognizing common animal and plants, such as specific dog breeds and flowers.
