[USA], May 9 (ANI): At its annual Google I/O 2018 developers' conference, the search giant introduced tons of new features and demoed technologies to make its products and services more user friendly. One of the announcements relates to Instant Apps which are set to get a overhaul with augmented reality (AR) support.

Instant Apps allow one to try an app without actually installing it. Google has now announced that Instant Apps will soon support ARCore, allowing users to experience AR apps without having to install them, The Verge reports.

The AR experience will also be closely integrated with search rather than within Google Play or in-app advertisements. For instance, you will be able to search for shoppable items, see a link to an Instant App and get to experience the product in AR. (ANI)
