AR is a new generation technology that helps the developers to overlay the digital object onto the real surroundings using the device screen. Samsung Galaxy S8 and Pixel phones will be first to experience the AR amongst the Android devices. Google said that they are expecting to distribute the feature to almost 100 million Android devices without mentioning any date.
