Google announced its augmented reality platform called ARCore last year. However, at the time of release, not everyone could try out its capabilities. ARCore was compatible with only a few devices, but now the situation has changed somewhat.

To date, the platform supports more than a dozen different devices. Among them are smartphones from Google, Samsung, ASUS, Huawei, Motorola and OnePlus. The full list can be found on the website.
