Google Search is about to get very interesting

June 9, 2019

How about seeing results in augmented reality?

If you use Google on a daily basis, then you may have already noticed this new feature that’s rolling out to its mobile search platform. AR animals is the new feature that will let you see animals that you search for in AR, giving you a realistic view of what they are and how exactly they look like.

This new AR feature will arrive on Android devices that support ARCore and iOS devices that support ARKit. At the moment, animals are the only supported results that can be displayed in AR. This includes tigers, cats, and even sharks.

You can check out the feature by heading to your phone’s browser and typing in a specific animal on the search page. Once it shows you the results, you can preview the animal in 3D or even better, in AR. You can even come close to see the animal’s face – which is probably the safest way to do it.

This is another effort on Google’s part in exploring the benefits of AR. Earlier this month, it introduced a new AR view on Google Maps that guides you to your desired location in real-time.
