Google's ARCore was developed through a collaboration of Google's VR Group and Android team. The software development kit (SDK) is supported by both the Samsung S8 and the Google Pixel and gives more than 100 million users access to ARCore apps. In regards to Apple customers - any customers who have iPhones or iPads with iOS 11 have access to all ARKit applications. The combination provides content creators with the opportunity to reach an ever increasing base of consumers. Going forward, we expect to see a steady increase in the creation and use of new and exciting AR experiences.
The New York Times has released two previous AR experiences, with its coverage of the Winter Olympics representing its first use of news coverage through AR.
