Guess what? Google has just added 3D augmented reality (AR) animals to its search results!
If you have an ARCore or ARKit-ready iPhone and Android phone, you can try out the function and start turning your world into a jungle.
Here’s how you do it:
Step 1: Open Google Search and type in panda/lion/tiger/raccoon/bear
Step 2 : Click on “View in 3D”
Step 3: Tap on the “AR” button at the top of the screen
Step 4 : Go wild with your new friend!
Naturally, we had to give it a try and gave in to our animal instincts, played around with a panda, tiger, lion, horse, raccoon, bear and shark in the office.
Twitter users have also discovered penguins, alligators, dogs and more:
