All mobile phones compatible with ARCore, the augmented reality of Google for Android

In August of last year, Google took a more than necessary jump in its division oriented to augmented reality . What until then was known as Project Tango, and was nothing more than a project in diapers , only compatible with a very limited number of devices, became ARCore , a much more consolidated platform with which to stand up to Apple’s ARKit , offering a wide range of compatible devices and new tools for developers to create increasingly advanced applications and experiences.

Today, ARCore is already compatible with a good number of different Android phones , and even with the latest Apple iPhone models . In this article we show you what are the devices on which Google’s augmented reality platform works, and how to use it.

First of all, what is ARCore?

According to Google itself, ARCore is a platform designed to create experiences of augmented reality of quality . Thanks to the use of different APIs, developers can take advantage of the device’s resources to make users “feel” the environment, understand and interact with the information.

To function, ARCore is based on two basic principles : the first, the monitoring of the position of the device and its movements, and the creation of its own understanding of the real world. To carry out motion tracking, ARCore uses the phone’s camera to identify different points, and monitors them to record how they move. Thus, it is possible to determine both the position and the orientation of the telephone. In addition, it is able to detect planar surfaces and estimate the illumination of the area in which the device is located.

When using experiences based on augmented reality with ARCore, it is necessary to have the application of the platform installed on the phone . This is totally free, and can be downloaded from Google Play.

All devices compatible with ARCore today

Google frequently updates the official list of devices compatible with ARCore , to add new models that will be able to run applications based on this augmented reality platform developed by the great G. Today, these are all phones in which You can – or may, as suggested by the code of the latest version of the app available – use ARCore , as long as, yes, they are updated to Android 8 or a higher version:
