Google is experimenting to integrate Augmented Reality features in its web used by mobiles and desktops. This will allow the users to create virtual 3D objects, and they can also be downloaded on smartphones.

According to an article published in android police, currently the new system is pretty much a 3D model with camera integration. Interface also seems to be intuitive and fluid. It’s reasonably refined, as you’re able to walk around an object to see it from more perspectives while it stays in position, but it doesn’t appear to have much in the way of interaction or animation yet.
Google’s WebXR team members Reza Ali and Josh Carpenter said that “In the next few months, there will be hundreds of millions of Android and iOS devices that are able to provide augmented reality experiences — meaning you’ll be able to look at the world through your phone, and place digital objects wherever you look. To help bring this to as many users as possible, we’ve been exploring how to bring augmented reality to the web platform, so someday anyone with a browser can access this new technology.”
Augmented Reality (AR) will be able to place the 3D digital objects into the real world by using the built-in cameras in smartphones.
