The ARCore, is the Augmented Reality (AR) platform of the search engine giant Google. And it was announced by the company in August last year. The ARCore doesn’t need any special hardware requirements to give the Augmented Reality to make happen on more Android devices.
Well, now the company has finally brought the ARCore to China, and it will be supported on the Mi Mix 2S. Users of the device can download the ARCore from the Xiaomi App Store, and in this Google has launched the ARCore to a different app store. Till now, it was only available on Google Play Store and if you are unaware then Google Play Store is blocked in China and that’s why Google rolled out it to a different app store.
The availability of the ARCore in China is officially announced by the search engine giant through Twitter, and the company also mentioned that “more partners coming soon.” Well, this hints that Google will support more manufacturers.

Speaking about the supporting applications with the ARCore, then there are not too many applications are available at this moment. But as the number of supported devices increases, we can expect that developers will launch their applications with the support of the new Augmented Reality platform of the Google.
