Google Focuses on ARCore, Announces Death of Tango

18 Décembre 2017

Google is now shifting its focus to its mass market product, ARCore, a native support for augmented reality in all Android smartphones.

Announced in 2014, Project Tango by Google was its early attempt at bringing AR (augmented reality) on smartphones.

Google has today taken down the official Project Tango website, and through its twitter account announced that support is being discontinued on March 1, 2018.

Joseph Parker says he's willing to put his WBO belt on the line against Joshua which will likely take place in Britain in March. "I'd say the more Joshua shines, the better I shine.

"Thank you to our incredible community of developers who made such progress with Tango over the last three years", the company said in a tweet.

Google will be replacing Tango with the new ARCore platform.

The company seemed to have its hand forced this year by Apple which talked a big game regarding its ARKit platform on iOS11, leaving Google to abandon the high cost of entry to Android AR with the introduction of ARCore this past August. It was because of this, the lack software beyond some tech demos, plus only two compatible devices - the Lenovo Phab 2 Pro and the Asus ZenFone AR - that help facilitate Tango's demise. The ability of ARCore to function on devices with a single-camera setup makes it a much more attractive proposition for developers and smartphone manufacturers alike. A Project Tango-enabled smartphone required a depth-sensing camera, IR projector, and a special motion tracking camera. Google had introduced the ARCore system by simply introducing AR stickers for Pixel and Pixel 2 phones.
