Google updates Measure, moving it from Project Tango to ARCore:- Last year, Google decided to shut off Project Tango by March, this year. Later, Google updated its Project Tango baed Measure app with its new project, ARCore. Now, the app is available for all those devices, which are supported by ARCore. The device list includes all ranges of devices. These devices are from budget range to flagship like Pixel 2XL. Also, the app has minimum SDK support from Android 7.0. But it is also possible, some features may require Android 8.0 and up.
The Measure is based on ARCore.
As the name suggests, it is used for measurement purposes. Like, you have a virtual scale to take the length of things around. Although being a virtual scale, the measurements are quite estimated. Like it cannot give you the actual length like a physical scale.
The use involves scanning a particular area. We can take the height and width of the area. A grid is formed with dots for point precision, though not exact. After scanning the area with camera’s viewfinder, you can use height and width slider, by dragging the same to camera’s viewfinder.
Also, you can save the photo, if you have frequent memory loss.
As per the app’s own description, the measurements taken aren’t precise at all.
This month, Apple also announced ARKit 2.0, which works as same as ARCore. Similar to Google Measure, Apple also has one. But after ARKit 2.0 was announced, Google updated the Measure in response to Apple.
