Google updates Measure app to support all ARCore phones, previously Tango-only

Google's AR tape measure app is now available on all ARCore-enabled devices

Note the blue margin-of-error text below the measurement. It's ideal, for instance, for people who are looking to get new furniture in, but might not have a physical tape measure to hand.

Should you own a device that supports ARCore, which is any of the devices listed here, you can now download and use the Measure app.

Tango used a time-of-flight camera, an IR projector, and a fish-eye motion camera to measure things, but now with an ARCore-compatible Android device, you can run the exact same app with normal smartphone hardware. Shorter measurements are usually within half an inch, while longer measurements can be off by several inches. For serious stuff, it's best to use a tape but if you just need a rough estimate then this can be quite useful. As the name suggests, it's an application that lets you measure the length and height of objects.

If you're familiar with AR, the experience is pretty simple: place two markers in real-world locations and get the distance between the two.

Version 2.0 of Measure brings the ability to capture "quick, everyday measurements" to many more phones, including dozens of top flagship devices from the Pixel 2 to Samsung's Galaxy S9.
