Getting started with ARCore

Platform-specific guides

To get started using ARCore in your app, follow the platform-specific guides, listed above, for your platform. Once you've set up your environment and confirmed that you can run the sample app, you'll want to enable ARCore as either AR Required or AR Optional, and configure an ARCore session for your app. Then you can explore ARCore features such as Instant Placement, Augmented Images, and Cloud Anchors.
