How would you like a pic alongside a roaring lion or a cuddly panda? If your answer is yes, and you’re also wondering how in post-lockdown India you ‘d do that, this how-to is here to help.
This can happen thanks to a Google search feature that is rarely used and that shows 3D animals in augmented reality (AR). Even if you don’t have a pet at home, you can interact with a virtual one, at least.
How to use 3D animals on Google
Step 1: Open Google and type the name of the animal you want to see
Step 2: Scroll down and tap on the “View in 3D”
Step 3: Move around while pointing your phone on the floor and wait till it recognizes a base for the object to appear
And it is! You’re well to go. You can now zoom in, or zoom out, to make the object tiny. You can drag and drop to get it going around. Happy petting!
