ARCore rolls out depth support

Exciting news from my teammates:

Today, we’re taking a major step forward and announcing the Depth API is available in ARCore 1.18 for Android and Unity, including AR Foundation, across hundreds of millions of compatible Android devices.

As we highlighted last year, a key capability of the Depth API is occlusion: the ability for digital objects to accurately appear behind real world objects. This makes objects feel as if they’re actually in your space, creating a more realistic AR experience.

Check out the new Depth Lab app (also available as an open-source Unity project) to try it for yourself. You can play hide-the-hot-dog with Snap, as well as check out an Android-exclusive undersea lens:
