About Daydream & ARCore

With more than two billion active devices, Android is the largest mobile platform in the world. And for the past nine years, Google has worked to create a rich set of tools, frameworks and APIs that deliver developers’ creations to people everywhere. Two years ago, Google announced Daydream, a VR platform that is built into the Android mobile operating system.  On August 29, 2017, Google released a preview of a new software development kit (SDK) called ARCore. It brings augmented reality capabilities to existing and future Android phones.  Google has been developing the fundamental technologies that power mobile AR over the last three years with Tango, and ARCore is built on that work. But, it works without any additional hardware, which means it can scale across the Android ecosystem.
