Experience AR with Google Play Services for AR

You can explore augmented reality (AR) in apps like Measure, Just a Line and more.

What's AR?

Augmented reality uses your device to blend digital content into the real world. Unlike virtual reality (VR), you won’t need any headsets, goggles or other extra equipment. Instead, all you need is your device’s camera and an AR app.

To use Google Play Services for AR, you need an Android device with:

  • A Google account
  • ARCore-certification
  • At least 1 GB of free space
  • At least one AR app installed
  • An unmetered mobile network

Check which devices are AR certified.
