Google again proved that it has many ways of reaching out the to users with its exclusive services. The tech giant announced that it will be bringing the ARCore to China with the help of Xiaomi. The Augmented Reality experience from Google is available to the Android users widely across the globe, but there are some regions that haven't tasted the technology yet.

The AR featured app will only come with ‘Xiaomi Mix 2S’ for the smartphone users in China. Moreover, initially, the apps and features will be limited but the company will add more apps in the coming time.
