Indeed, the company's old AR platform will be no longer be a reality - augmented or otherwise - on March 1. The software development tools mean that AR apps can work on a wider variety of Android devices instead of the limited and comparatively bulky Project Tango phones.

The company mentioned in a blog, "We've been working on augmented reality since 2014, with our earliest investments in Project Tango". "We're turning down support for Tango on March 1, 2018". The project involved equipping smartphones with 3D depth sensing and motion tracking technology so that they could run specially built AR apps. Earlier this year, the Asus ZenFone AR launched with support for Tango and Google's VR platform Daydream.

According to Williams, the song was inspired by Keith Scott , a man who was fatally shot by police in North Carolina past year . She knows, you can tell in her voice she sees what's going to happen and she's saying, 'Don't do it.

Well, the requirement of specialized hardware is one of the reasons why Project Tango wasn't adopted as widely as it should have been.

Tango finally came to market in 2016, as the flagship feature in the Lenovo Phab2 Pro smartphone. More advanced Tango applications would actually draw a line in a store aisle in front of you to take you straight to the item you need, or turn your real-life motion into movement in a video game.

Today on Twitter Google announced that they have withdrawn support from Project Tango going forward, in favour of ARCore.

Project Tango deserves a lot of credit for showcasing just what AR experiences could be like on a mobile device. This makes it easier for Google to bring augmented reality to many more Android devices without much hassle.
