Google formally adds the Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro to its ARCore support list

Augmented reality might not seem as exciting as VR, but it’s capable of plenty of handy applications. From basic measuring tools to imaginary art galleries, AR can be a ton of fun — and with Google’s ARCore SDK, it’s easy to use with most modern Android phones. All supported devices have to be certified before running any of these experiences, and another 26 have been added to the list just in time to close out the year.

The big highlight here is, unsurprisingly, Google’s own Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro. With the company having double-downed on augmented reality during I/O this past summer, it would’ve been pretty embarrassing for its latest smartphones not to be formally included in the list. Thankfully, both phones have officially joined the party — as have 24 others, all of which you can find below.

It seems like every company under the sun wants to power new experiences with AR, which makes support all the more important. Of course, we’ll just keep using it to pretend there’s a triceratops in our living room. That seems like what it was made for, after all.
