OnePlus 8 phones join the club supporting 3D objects and animals in Google Search

There are a lot of fun 3D objects like skeletons, cars, planets, and animals you can view in Google Search, which might be perfect to pass the time while you and your kids are stuck at home. The underlying technology enabling this is called Google Play Services for AR, formerly known as ARCore.

The Samsung Galaxy Fold has been plagued by issues ever since its initial release, but lately, the phone hasn't been discussed as much as it used to — the Z Flip stole its spotlight. Samsung also doesn't seem to be too interested in its first foldable anymore as software development is going rather slow for the $2,000 device.
