Google has recently launched the software development kit (SDK) preview. For developers named as ARCore to bring Augmented Reality to various smartphones. Basically, augmented reality is the computer-generated image in a user’s view of the real world. 

But earlier, Google already had an AR platform dubbed Tango, which works on the necessary sensors and allows users to place virtual 3D objects in a physical space.

For now, Google’s ARCore technology is only available for Pixel phones and Samsung Galaxy S8. In a blog, the company said ARCore is available to approximately 100 million users, and its release date is yet to decide.

The new Augmented Reality focuses on three features – motion tracking determines the position and orientation. Environmental understanding for detecting horizontal surfaces using motion tracking as well as light estimation – makes the appearance more authentic.

But Google’s ARCore is competing with Apple’s ARKit as Apple runs AR apps with powerful lights and object positioning, which is the same as ARCore.
