Samsung’s latest flagships, Galaxy S9 and S9+ will reportedly now support Google’s augmented reality (AR) developer platform, ARCore.

“Google has updated its ARCore support page listing both the Galaxy S9 and the Galaxy S9+ with all major variants. This means that users will be able to download the ARCore app from Google Play on these devices,” 9to5Google reported on Tuesday.

Google’s ARCore makes it easier for developers to use the smartphone’s combination of hardware and software to create AR applications. Without ARCore support, AR apps won’t run on phones as well as they could with Google’s optimization tools.

Once installed, the Galaxy S9 devices will give users access to ARCore applications like Just a Line, IKEA’s Place, and in-app features from Amazon or eBay.

Earlier this year, when Samsung launched the S9 family, the company had added that the devices would support Google’s AR developer platform but that was not the case during the launch. (IANS)
