Now, there is a new platform called ARCore latest APK 1.6.181112093 (181112093). It was launched by Google in 2017. This is hoped to be able to help the users in anything.

ARCore app review
The platform of ARCore is built using Java/OpenGL, Unity & Unreal. Besides that, it also focuses on 3 things. The first is Motion Tracking. It allows you to decide the position & orientation of phone when moving. The virtual object is still placed accurately. The second is Environmental Understanding. It helps you detect the horizontal surface. The last is Light Estimation. In this case, this app observes the light around and lets the developer light up the virtual objects based on the environment so that they look more realistic.
This app can work without any additional hardware. Therefore, this can be used on your android smartphone available today including Samsung Galaxy 8 and Pixel that use Android Nougat. Then, now this app has been available in SDK Preview version. So, the developer can make experiments freely.
ARCore for android can also be used on computer to create web experience that use AR. Some of the examples are three.ar.js, Library Java Script, & also prototype browser for this app. In addition, this app is also available on iOS smartphones. Now, you may have it. However, you need to learn how to apply it on your android device first.
