You'll soon be able to get your hands on Android Go phones


Several developers worked to port it to more devices, but today Google has announced version 1.0 of ARCore and their plans to bring it to more Android devices. Primarily, Google has set a target of introducing ARCore in 100 million phones, by March 2018 with the help of their key Android partners. You can find the original announcement from Google at the source link below.

ARCore 1.0 is available for three development environments: Java, Unity and Unreal.

The first of which is Google Lens, which will finally be available inside the Google Photos app over the new few weeks to all English-language Android users and anyone using the iPhone version of Photos. The suggestion was that Google should add this feature in some subsequent Android release. Developers without access to a supported phone can use the emulator bundled in the latest Android Studio beta.

Since all we have to go on is Google Issue Tracker's note that a dark mode feature will show up in a future Android version, we have no idea if the future dark mode will be the same or similar to the one initially available on the Pixel 2, or be something more akin to what custom ROMs offer.

Meanwhile, Google Lens, a feature that is now available Google Pixel devices and uses computer vision to quickly recognize objects, businesses, and other things around you, is said to release for both Google Assistant and Google Photos in the next few weeks.

There are already a handful of applications using ARCore, including a portal to FC Barcelona's Camp Nou stadium created by Snapchat, Sotheby's International Realty interior visualization tool, and an app that puts Porsche's Mission E concept auto in users' driveways. Let's see if we can get that shored up real quick, shall we? Google told CNET those devices include smartphones from Samsung, Huawei, LG, Motorola, Sony and HMD/Nokia.

Since Google Lens' launch, the company has added text selection features and the ability to create contacts and events from a photo with one tap. Soon Lens will have improved support for recognizing common animals and plants, like different dog breeds and flowers.
