Google Tango Augmented Reality Project will Shut Down on March 1
Tango launched back in 2014 and used special sensors and cameras on devices to display virtual objects. ATAP, Google’s advanced technology and projects lab, developed Tango but it was soon succeeded by ARCore. But, Tango had some issues with speed and accuracy. Additionally, the phones that supported it were pricey due to the required hardware.
Tango was featured in the recent ASUS ZenFone AR. Project Tango devices relied on special sensors to make augmented reality apps work. However ARCore’s mission is to bring AR to all phones. The platform focuses on three things: motion tracking, environmental understanding, and light estimation, and drops the requirement of specialized hardware.
All the latest Samsung’s flagship devices like the Galaxy S8, Galaxy S8 Plus, and Galaxy Note 8 have all supported ARCore.
