Google AR search results are one of the coolest new things to come out of Google’s labs in recent months. After all, who doesn’t want to have a wide variety of animals blasted into their living room on command?
Starting today, Google has made its augmented reality search results a bit more terrifying with the addition of 23 3D insects.
How to View AR Insects in Google Search
If you want to check out the new insects, you’ll need to have an ARCore-supported Android device or an iOS device running iOS 11 and up. From there, you’ll just need to search for the insect you want to see in its larger-than-life form.
The Verge found that there are a total of 23 insects added with this update. And here’s the complete list of 3D insets you can now check out in augmented reality:
- Rhinoceros beetle
- Hercules beetle
- Atlas beetle
- Stag beetle
- Giant stag
- Miyama stag beetle
- Shining ball scarab beetle
- Jewel beetle
- Rosalia batesi
- Swallowtail butterfly
- Morpho butterfly
- Atlas moth
- Robust cicada
- Brown cicada
- Periodical cicada
- Walker’s cicada
- Evening cicada
Typing in any of the names listed above will bring up your typical results, but you’ll also see a button labeled View in 3D. You just need to tap that button and you’ll be able to view the insect either in your room through AR or only on a blank background.
What Else Can You View Using Google AR?
This update is just the tip of the iceberg in terms of what you can find within Google AR search results. There are all sorts of animals, such as dogs, cats, tigers, and more. You can even look at different kinds of dinosaurs right in your home.
