Do you want to test if your phone is AR enabled?
Are you interested in a hands on augmented reality experience?
You are at the right place.
The model viewer below has AR mode. You should see an AR button in the lower right corner on supported mobile devices. Clicking on it will trigger the augmented reality view mode in your browser. Read on for the details!
What gear do I need?
It requires an ARCore supported device:
- On iPhones and iPads it will open AR Quick Look. Any iPhone from SE and newer is AR enabled.
- On Android devices it opens Scene Viewer. The AR compatible Android devices need to run Android 7.0 Nougat or later installed with Google Play Services for AR. If this is not installed, it will prompt you to install it.
Make sure you open this post in a supported browser:
- On iOS use the latest version of Safari. (iOS Chrome has some known bugs at the moment – 2021.05.19)
- On Android use the latest version of Chrome.
If your device does not run the AR view mode, double check if you are using the right browser. Not all browsers and in-app browsers are supported at the moment, so if you received a link through messenger for example, open the options and click “Open here: Chrome” on Android or “Open here: Safari” on iOS.
Also double check your device is listed in the compatible devices and make sure you have the latest operating system updated. On Android devices you can also install the Google Play Services for AR from the Play Store manually.
In case you are still unable to run it, please do not hesitate to contact us for assistance.
How do I do it?
By moving around your device slowly a bit, it will look for a flat surface to place the model on. Once it finds a surface, it will automatically drop the model.
- On Android you can move it around by starting a swipe from the inside of the white rounded rectangle marker around it, rotate it by starting the swipe outside of the rounded rectangle and scale it by pinching on the screen.
- On iOS use the default gestures: you can move by simply swiping on the screen. Pinch for scaling. Rotate by rotating your two fingers around each other on the screen.
