Google’s ARCore is a software development kit (SDK) designed to enable developers to create augmented reality (AR) applications for Android devices. AR technology merges real-world surroundings with computer-generated objects, opening up many possibilities for innovative applications.
One of the best examples of AR technology is Google Maps’ Live View, which uses CGI-generated arrows overlaid on real-time camera footage to help pedestrians navigate their surroundings. Other popular AR applications include Snapchat and Pokémon Go.
In the past month, Google has added ARCore supported device to 21 Android devices, including six Motorola models. Today, the company announced that 14 more devices have received ARCore support, including the Honor 70 and the Moto G72.

Google follows a rigorous certification process to ensure that each device has the required camera, motion sensors, and design architecture to provide an optimal experience for AR apps.
Additionally, the ARCore supported device must have a powerful enough CPU that integrates with the hardware design for effective real-time calculations. Google works closely with manufacturers to meet these requirements, and it is constantly working to ensure ARCore integrates well with every certified model to provide good user experiences.
With ARCore, Google is providing developers with the tools they need to create innovative AR applications for Android devices. As more and more devices receive ARCore support, we can expect to see an explosion of exciting new AR apps hitting the market.
