Capable Devices

You don’t need an app anymore to view AR models. By now the technology has been deeply integrated into the mobile operating systems iOS and Android as both Google and Apple see the enormous potential.

 

As the result almost two billion smartphones have this capability at present (March 2020). And on your side you don’t have to do more than add a normal link to your online shop or website; no initial investment, no software development.
