What you need to know

  • Google has announced that it’s taking its AR prototypes outside closed testing spaces.
  • The company wants to test its AR devices in real-world conditions to work out the variables.
  • These devices won’t include photography or videography features.

Google is no stranger to AR, bringing plenty of helpful features to its Android phones through Lens and other applications. However, the company hopes to get serious about AR hardware and is bringing its prototypes to the public for testing.

That doesn’t mean just anyone in the general public can get their hands on these prototypes, however. But Google hopes public exposure can help it improve its AR hardware in real-life scenarios and ensure durability.
