Google has launched a preview version of ARCore, an augmented reality (AR) SDK for Android. "We've been developing the fundamental technologies that power mobile AR over the last three years with Tango, and ARCore is built on that work," blogged Google's Dave Burke. "But, it works without any additional hardware, which means it can scale across the Android ecosystem. ARCore will run on millions of devices, starting today with the Pixel and Samsung's S8, running 7.0 Nougat and above. We're targeting 100 million devices at the end of the preview. We're working with manufacturers like Samsung, Huawei, LG, ASUS and others to make this possible with a consistent bar for quality and high performance."

ARCore has motion tracking, environmental understanding and light estimation capabilities. It is currently an "early preview," and Google is asking developers to provide feedback on problems they find.
