Support for Tango will officially end 1 March, 2018. "Thank you to our incredible community of developers who made such progress with Tango over the last three years", the search giant said in a tweet. Google says developers building for ARCore will have an audience of around 100 million when the final version is released in a few months.
When Google first launched Project Tango, it had a lot of potential leading to the future of smartphones.
Still, as sad as this news is for AR enthusiasts, not to mention early adopters and owners of devices, like the Lenovo Phab2 Pro or the Asus Zenfone AR, there is an upside to the story as well. Plus, the industry seem to be collectively moving towards a software solution to AR - case and point, Apple's ARkit, which single-handedly transformed iOS into the largest AR platform in existence. Tango devices required a depth-sensing camera, IR projector, and a special motion-tracking camera. But, Tango soon started falling off the radar due to speed and accuracy issues.
Forbes reveals OEM using Synaptics' in-display sensor
The advantage of opting for in-display sensors would let manufacturers bring more full-screen smartphones in the future. Named "Clear ID", these are expected to work exactly like the home button fingerprint sensors.
However this does not mean that Google isn't pursuing AR tech anymore. Moreover, it doesn't require any special hardware.
The Tango platform was dedicated to bringing AR to smartphones. But, Google already has a host of other companies on board like LG, Huawei, ASUS and more. ARCore doesn't suffer from the same setbacks as it works with existing hardware, making it a much more viable mass market option to focus on. In the near future, the platform is expected to receive an OS-wide implementation.
The Google ARCore is a new platform for AR development which is created to help developers build augmented reality apps for various devices without the requirement of specialised hardware. That's all in addition to the regular camera hardware.
