What if I tell you that you can have wild animals like lions & tigers in your home without smuggling them from zoos or anywhere else? Well, now you too can become Tiger King, Joe Exotic in your own right with Google AR. Since we have shut ourselves in our houses due to COVID-19, we are looking for different ways to entertain ourselves in various ways.
Viewing wild animals in 3D & then making them place in different places in our house is a whole new experience. It’s an amazing & entertaining way to keep the children occupied while you are finishing up giving your walls a new look.
Google Search AR Feature: How to use Google 3D animals
A while back, Google announced using AR in Google search that let you place 3D objects in your place. And that too directly from your searched results.
“Now you can use AR to place 3D digital objects right in your own space directly from Search or from websites on Chrome. Learn more about everything from NASA’s Curiosity Rover to human anatomy to animals like hedgehogs, penguins, and sharks, with a greater sense of context and scale.”
Without further ado, let’s check out the ways to view Google 3D AR animals in your room:
- Let’s start the entertainment train by opening up Google Chrome app on your phone.
- Google Search the name of the animal you want in your room & type the animal name. For example, Tiger
- Click on Search & just below the pictures; you will see “Meet a life-sized tiger up close” text in a box.
- Click on the “View in 3D” option that too will also be mentioned in the box.
- Now, the cell phone will ask you to move your phone around the house with the object to put it wherever you like.
- Here you have a tiger view in 3D on your floor & carry on doing it with different animals & entertain your kids.
- Keep resizing the 3D tiger object with zooming in & zooming out.
Please know that the 3D tiger isn’t going to be there forever as it will go away within 30 seconds. Don’t forget to take screenshots.
We took the example of Tiger but you know that you can view any of the animals you want in your room. Tiger view in 3D, lion view in 3D, bears, alligators, dogs, cheetahs, ducks, eagles, pandas, sharks, snakes, horses and more animals in 3D. You can experience all of them right in your house & play with the Google AR animals. Google has already started adding more animals to the list to make it as entertaining as possible. Another good thing is that Google isn’t limiting itself just with Google 3D animals but planets such as Earth and Mars & that too in 3D.

Are There Any other AR objects Available in Google Search?
Yeah!! We know that we can already view all the wild & lovely animals in our bedrooms & hall. However, wouldn’t it be cool to know if there is anything more than viewing Google 3D animals. I mean what if there are any other AR objects also that we can view in Google Search & have mesmerizing experience. You know you want to know so let’s just check it out:
Google has collaborated with many websites that include various features to provide a better experience for users to view objects in 3D. From as beautiful as Space to as complicated as the human body, you can view almost everything in 3D.
The process to view the AR objects as same as above we did for 3D animals. The only thing different is the objects we are going to view.
Let’s take the example of Planets ( Mercury, Venus, Earth, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune, Pluto) & all you need to do is, just put in the name of the planet on Google.
If we pick Mercury for an example, just search view Mercury in 3D (on your iPhone) & you will find the result you are looking for.
The same way, Google also collaborated with BioDigital that has the mission of powering the world’s understanding of the human body. & that can only be achieved if people about the human body in & out without hesitation. & what better way to do that apart from watching it as an AR object on your device. Just imagine the human skeleton in front of you with every info about the body with body part names & everything. Watch the video below to get better understanding:
Just search the Human skeleton or skeleton system on Google (Chrome on iPhone) & view it in 3D. Your experience would be more than amazing & one of a kind watching this object in 3D.
For your surprise, Google is planning to come with Cars to be viewed as an AR object on your iPhone. Get ready to experience the world of cars in a much detailed manner. All the very best & have utmost fun.
Can I View Google 3D Animals or Google AR Animals on Laptop?
Well, one of the most common questions users have is that can they have the same experience of viewing Google AR animals on a laptop/desktop? The answer is straight NO. You do not have the liberty to view 3D Google animals on your laptop or desktop.
You can experience tiger view in 3D Google only on your smartphones & iPhone (and that too a limited series of cell phone models).

iPhone & Android Phone Differentiation on Google AR Animals
For the iPhone, you will be able to see the “View in 3D” option only on Google Chrome app results. Noother app will give you the same results as Chrome app. Not even Google app itself. The 3D AR animals in your room can be seen only with iOS 11 version or higher.
However, the case isn’t the same with an Android smartphone or tablet. You can use either of the apps (Chrome or Google) & you are all set. You just need to check the Android version you are running on your smartphone that has to be higher than Android 7.
It’s a harm free, most entertaining, & enjoyable way to make kids interact with Google 3D animals. Just show them how to do it & in no time, they will be drowned in their own created zoo that won’t have borders. From a cute panda to dangerous lion, everyone will be around him/her & accompany them.
In the midst of Novel Coronavirus, I believe it’s the perfect way to keep your children occupied for a while.
