ARCore 1.0 will debut alongside expanded developer support, with Google confirming it will now start accepting AR apps on the Play Store.

Two of the Pixel 2's main software selling points are expanding with the announcement of new partnerships and devices today. According to Google, ARCore works on 100 million Android smartphones out in the wild, with "advanced" capabilities available on 13 super-recent Android devices like the Pixel 2, Galaxy S3, and similar. The more users adopt Pixel devices or upgrade to the latest version of Android, the better Google's artificial intelligence becomes - and augmented reality is a hot feature that could lure customers. Please kindly add a Dark Mode or Night Theme in Android 9.0 that we can set under "Settings" in Android 9.0.

ARCore 1.0 also now features improved environmental understanding.

Google claims that the aim of Android Go is to make smartphones attainable in developing markets that have the largest populations of budget consumers.
