    [Update: Galaxy Fold] Galaxy Note 10, Galaxy A90 5G and Galaxy Tab S6 get ARCore support

    Google continues to add support for new Samsung devices to ARCore, its software-based augmented reality platform. The most recent devices to pick up support for the platform included the Galaxy Tab S5e and a handful of new Galaxy A phones. Samsung's newest devices have now been added to the list as well. The Galaxy Note 10 and Galaxy Note 10+, Galaxy A90 5G and the Galaxy Tab S6 have all received ARCore support.

    Google has made a slight change to the app's listing in the Play Store as well. It has decided to rebrand the app from ARCore to “Google Play Service for AR.” Perhaps the name change is meant to highlight that the app is quite like the regular Play Services in that it isn't a usable app itself instead it brings SDKs which allow other apps to provide AR experiences.

    Apps based on this platform are able to superimpose computer-generated objects and shapes on the real world as they're viewed through the device's camera. Users can then move these objects and shapes around either by walking with the device or relying on the sensors to detect movement.

    The ARCore platform was developed by Google to enable augmented reality experiences on smartphones without requiring any special hardware. So bringing support to these new devices is just a matter of rolling out an app update. Many developers have since used the platform to create different apps and games that offer AR experiences. Now, users with a Galaxy Note 10, Galaxy A90 5G or a Galaxy Tab S6 will be able to enjoy them as well.

    Update: Google has now added support for the Galaxy Fold as well.
