Google added AR versions of athletes Megan Rapinoe, Naomi Osaka, and Simone Biles to its Search function. The company plans to release more AR athletes at a later date.
- Searching for each athlete will pull up the option to view them in 3D, where users can watch them performing various feats in AR.
- Olympic gymnast Simone Biles, for example, can perform a flip and triple-double.
- The feature is available on Android phones running Android 7.0 Nougat and higher using either the Chrome app, Google Search app, or an Android browser. It also works on iPhones running iOS 11 or later.
- Google announced the addition of augmented reality objects to Search back in 2019. It has since added hundreds of 3D animals, objects, biological systems, and more for viewing in AR.
