Google’s Measure App Will Now Work Across All Android 7.0 Devices

Android users who use Pixel 2, Galaxy S9, and the G7 ThinQ will now be able to use the Google Measure App. This is because Android 7 and upwards supports the company’s ARCore standard. The project was previously known as Project Tango which involved specialised cameras and sensors.

The measure app is a augmented reality app that you can use to measure things. The Google Page gives the following info:

Move your phone around the space to find flat surfaces such as tabletops or the floor. Then drag a length tool or height tool into the scene, and adjust it to the right size. Tap the camera icon to snap a photo for later, or tap the trash icon to start a new measurement.

Earlier at the WWDC event, Apple had announced a similar Measure App which will come along with iOS 12. It also works by pointing the phone’s camera to measure objects.
