    ARCore will run on millions of devices, starting today with the Pixel and Samsung’s S8, running 7.0 Nougat and above. We’re targeting 100 million devices at the end of the preview.
    ARCore works with Java/OpenGL, Unity and Unreal and focuses on three things:

    Motion tracking
    Environmental Understanding
    Light Estimation


    Visual Positioning Service (VPS), a service which will enable world scale AR experiences well beyond a tabletop
    custom browsers allow developers to create AR-enhanced websites and run them on both Android/ARCore and iOS/ARKit.
