Amazon app allows you to shop in AR on certain Android and iOS devices



Thanks to the release of Google's AR platform ARCore 1.0, certain Android handsets will allow you to access AR View and shop on the Amazon app in AR. This means that you can look for home furniture, decor for the home, Amazon Echo products and even toys using Augmented Reality. Certain products will be listed on the app with the phrase "See how this product fits in your room." You will be able to see a new office chair sitting in your personal work space at home, allowing you to see how it looks in the room without having to buy the chair and take it home.

Before you open the Amazon app, expecting to be dazzled by all of those amazing AR effects, your phone must support ARCore 1.0. Check this list to see if your phone is compatible with the platform:

If your phone is listed (some models require that Android 8.0 or higher is installed), open the Amazon app and click on the camera icon located in the search bar. Tap AR View, and you'll be able to see how that new chair looks in your home office.
