How To Fix You Can’t See Animals in 3D in Your Space Using Google AR

Back in April this year when we were forced to live inside our houses becuase of COVID-19 shutdowns, we told you about Google’s AR feature which let you see 3D animals in augmented reality. Google introduced this feature at last year’s Google I/O and added a whole list of animals for everyone to see in 3D while doing a simple Google search. However some of the users are still facing issue in using this feature. So if you also can’t see animals in 3D using Google AR, here’s how to fix it.

Fix Can’t See Animals in 3D

When we search an animal name on Google, all phones show the ‘View in 3D’ option, but many phones are creating issues when people try to use the ‘View in your space’ option. So they cannot see the 3D animal in their space.

This happens because not all phones support Google’s ARCore which is required to see 3D animals in your space. The latest smartphones don’t ususally face this issue. But if you are still facing it, follow these steps:

1] First of all, you need to check if your phone supports Google ARCore.

2] For this, go to apps in settings and check if the Google Play Services for AR app is installed on your phone or not.

3] If it is not, you need to go to the Play Store to make sure to install AR app’s latest updated version.
