Sketchfab Introduces Support for Android ARCore

New app brings Sketchfab’s library of over 2 million CG models to Android users in augmented reality and virtual reality.

Sketchfab is extending AR support to Android users via Google’s ARCore. After recently updating its iOS mobile app to support Augmented Reality (AR), Sketchfab announced today that it is now extending AR support to Android users.

The 3D sharing platform has updated its mobile app to support Google’s ARCore functionality, giving Android users access to over two million models on Sketchfab, probably the largest AR library in the world. Sketchfab is also one of the first app developers to support both ARKit and ARCore.

Given Sketchfab’s existing integration in a broad variety of 3D creation software, the addition of ARCore support makes it easy for creators to publish 3D work to AR without needing to write a single line of code.

“Mobile AR lets you navigate 3D content in a much more natural and intuitive way than a 2D screen,” explains Sketchfab co-founder and CEO, Alban Denoyel. “You can move around any object or scene with 6 degrees of freedom, just like you would in real life, or in VR, but without the limitations of either.”

The updated app is available starting today from the Play Store.
