Make more than three years, Google demonstrated with ARCore that no additional hardware was required to enjoy the augmented reality. With the main camera of our device it was enough to track the environment and place 3d animals and other elements.

In all these years ARCore has reached more than 450 mobiles, and in all these devices using a single camera to perform the calculations, but this will soon change. Google is going to start using the dual camera to enhance the augmented reality experience, at least in the Pixel 4.

The recent update of Google Play services for AR informs that among its news that the “Stereo Depth for Dual Camera on Compatible Devices”. And if we go to ARCore compatibility page we see in the Pixel 4 Y Pixel 4 XL that “dual camera support will be rolled out in the next few weeks.”

The penultimate generation of Pixels would be the first devices to release that new depth in stereo, a feature that should improve the quality of augmented reality by being able to more accurately calculate the depth of the environment, especially to detect physical elements that stand in front of virtual 3D objects.

Google has not yet officially announced this novelty, it has only mentioned it in the Google Play file and on the support page, so the only thing we know is that in a few weeks this improvement would reach the Pixel 4. It is unknown If it will also reach the Pixel 4a XL and Pixel 5 or devices with dual cameras from other manufacturers.
