Galaxy S20 family formally joins list of devices supporting AR objects in Google Search


On many Android devices, Google Search lets you view tons of 3D models like animals, pets, skeletons, cells, Neil Armstrong’s spacesuit, and much more. With the tap of a button, you can move these objects into your home and see them as though they were in your camera’s viewfinder. It’s even possible to snap photos and take videos. The list of supported phones is ever-expanding — devices like the Sony Xperia 1 II, the Poco X2, the Xiaomi Redmi K30, and Samsung’s Galaxy Tab S6 Lite made the cut we when checked in at the beginning of June, and now a few more are popping up, including the flagship Galaxy S20 series.
