One highlight of this year has been the immense popularity of AR creatures from Google that helps replicate the great outdoors inside. Google Search has now added 50 new 3D animals in the biggest drop yet.
Announced on Friday afternoon, there are “50 new AR animals to discover on Search.” Google only highlighted a fraction of them in its video: hippo, giraffe, milk cow, cat, zebra, pig, and chow chow.
Like before, these new 3D animals are available on most modern Android and iOS devices. Just search for them on a mobile browser or through the Google app, and scroll until you find the animated card inviting you to meet a life-sized creature up close. You can zoom in on an accurate model that includes sound effects. The main attraction is placing them in your environment to take pictures and videos for viral moments.
There are a slew of new dog breeds and cats. So far, we’ve discovered the following — let us know in the comments if you find the rest:
|Border Collie||German Shepherd||Pitbull|
|Cane Corso||Hamster||Red panda|
|Dachshund||Milk cow||Welsh Corgi|
Over the past few months, Google has been expanding its collection of 3D animals. The latest occurred in November when the company marked summer in Australia with new models from down under, like a kangaroo and echidna.
