Here are all of the Google AR animals you can see in 3D

Google believes in the practical side of augmented reality. For the last couple of years, the collection of Google 3D animals and objects has expanded on mobile devices, from land animals to underwater creatures to birds, house pets, and even dinosaurs. There's also a growing collection focusing on the human anatomy and the internal biology of our organs and cells, along with planets and other objects in our solar system. It's pretty amazing!

And while you don't need an expensive Android device to experience it, with support available for tons of phones, including really affordable Android devices, Google doesn't make it easy to see every animal or object that you can view in 3D. That's where we come in. We're going to show you every single 3D animal and object Google offers below, along with instructions on how to use them.

How do you access Google's 3D Animals and Objects?

It's easy to access Google's 3D Animals and other Objects. Just search for a supported animal as you usually would in Google on a mobile device, like a smartphone or tablet (3D Animals won't show up on a desktop or laptop computer). If the animal is a supported one, you'll see a Google Search Knowledge Panel similar to those that would appear for celebrities and movies.

Here's what this process looks like on a step-by-step basis:

  1. Open Google Search on your phone.
  2. Search for a supported 3D animal/object (we're using "cat" for this example).
  3. Tap the View in 3D button.

This page allows you to view the 3D object with the full ability to resize and move it. If you tap the View in your space button, you can even view it right in your home using augmented reality (we'll dive more into that later on).

How do you use Google's 3D Animals and Objects in Object View?

When you first open a 3D Animal/Object, you'll see an animated 3D animal against a white background in Object view. You can slide your finger on the animal to have it move up and down, side to side, and rotate a full 360 degrees so you can analyze every inch, from the backside to the underside. Zoom in by sliding your fingers out and zoom out by pinching them together.

You can tap the share icon near the bottom-right of your phone to share the 3D object through your preferred app, whether it be Twitter, Instagram, or as a regular text. When you do this, Google generates a link that goes right to the 3D item so people can just tap on it and instantly see said object.

How do you use Google's 3D Animals and Objects in AR?

Google Search 3D AR View

In the AR view, move your phone around the room to map and process your surroundings. The animal will soon pop up, blended in with your environment. It might take a few tries, so be patient. Once it works, the animal will appear on your floor, perched atop a shelf, on your computer desk, or wherever you want to place it.

  1. When viewing a 3D animal/object in Object view, tap View in your space.
  2. Tap Give access.
  3. Tap Allow all the time.

  4. Tap Allow.
  5. Your 3D animal/object will appear before your eyes.
  6. Move around with your phone to look at it from different angles.

To change the animal's orientation to see the backside and tail of a cute French bulldog, for example, hold one finger on the animal/object and rotate it with another. You don't get the same 360-degree ability to view things like the underside or top of a duck as you would in Object view, but you can turn the animal around, so it's facing different directions.

If you hold the phone still, the animals will do things on their own, too (like wag a tail, hop, or sniff). The tiger, for example, will open its mouth to roar, and the snake will inspect its surroundings.

In this AR mode, you can also resize an animal/object by pinching and zooming on it. It'll be set at 100% by default to give you an idea of what it looks like in real life, but it can be fun to mess with the different sizes. Additionally, if you want to move a 3D animal/object to a different part of the room, place one finger on the animal and drag it to where you want it.

What is object blending and how do you use it?

Object blending is a feature available on Android devices that allows the animal to better blend into your real world. It will enable the 3D objects to sense the world around them and adapt to the room/area they're in accordingly.

It's a neat way to make it look like a snake is hiding behind the couch, for example, more realistically displaying only the reptile parts that would be visible if it were actually real.

It's easy to use object blending. When in AR view, you'll see a small circle icon on the top-right with one half that's shaded and one clear. Simply tap that to turn object blending on and off. Of course, you need to get up close to the animal for it to work correctly, and it takes a few seconds for the image to start fading out and blend in nicely. But once it's set perfectly, you can snap a photo to send to friends and family for a good laugh, and kids can have loads of fun playing around with it.

What kind of phone do you need to see Google's 3D Animals and Objects?

Google's 3D Animals work on many devices, including Android and iOS smartphones and tablets.

For Android, it must be an Android device or tablet with Android 7.0 or higher with the Google Play Store pre-installed.

For iPhones and iPads, the device needs to be iOS 11.0 or higher.

Some of the many devices that Google 3D Animals will work on include the Samsung Galaxy S8, S9, S10, S20, Note 8, 9, and 10; any Google Pixel phone; and select Android devices from LG, Motorola, OnePlus, Huawei, Oppo, Xiaomi, Sony, and others. The iPhone 6S, 7, 8, X, 11, and most iPads will also display Google 3D Animals, provided the iOS is updated. If your device has the Google Play Services for AR app installed, chances are it will support the full Google 3D Animals experience. Google also provides a whole list of supported Android devices and iOS devices.

Do Google's 3D Animals and Objects have sound?

Google 3D Animals have accompanying sounds, which I could hear without issue on Android and Apple devices.

The roar of the tiger is as menacing as if you'd heard one in real life, as is the grumbling of the alligator. The hissing of the Ball python as it moves around gives off the feeling that it's about the strike at any moment.

There are some cute ones, too, like the adorable bark and whine of a golden retriever or Welsh Corgi, the nay of a horse, and the quack of a duck. Even animals like the rabbit include audio with a quiet crinkling and sniffing sound as it searches for food and examines its surroundings. With the angler fish, another relatively quiet animal, you'll hear the sounds of water as it swims around on the screen.

What other 3D Animals and Objects does Google Search support?

Google Search 3D AR View

Google doesn't just offer Animals in its 3D search results. There are tons of other objects and items that you can view in 3D. In some cases, just type in the item, and the 3D result will appear as the first one. In others, however, you have to punch in very specific keywords to get the correct result. Unfortunately, we weren't able to find these items, but you might have better luck. Here's a comprehensive list!

Google 3D Animals are fun & educational

Google 3D animals are a little hidden treasure within Google Search that is super fun once you discover it, not to mention educational. It's an excellent tool for kids, especially, who will enjoy exploring different animals in total 360-degree, 3D views, exploring every inch of their bodies and surfaces. And you can have tons of fun placing the animals into your environments using the AR View. It's a fun activity in the moment, or even snap photos and send them to others to confuse or scare them into thinking there's a snake in your trash can or a raccoon in your garden.

As we delve into the other objects that Google offers in 3D, the educational component becomes even more apparent. Students in specific fields can get an up-close look at everything from the planets to the human body that provides far more detail and perspective than a textbook, or even a web page, ever could.

We'll be delving deeper into these other objects soon. But for now, have a blast searching for the various animals Google offers in 3D.

How to watch season 18 of Grey’s Anatomy online from anywhere

After last season was cut short, Grey's Anatomy is returning to ABC with brand new episodes and we have all the details on how you can watch the longest running medical drama yet on TV or online. Just as ABC did with season 17 last year, the season 18 premiere of the show will actually be a two-hour crossover event with Grey's Anatomy spin-off series Station 19. While Grey's Anatomy tells the story of Meredith Grey, played by Ellen Pompeo, and the other doctors, nurses and residents at Grey Sloan Memorial Hospital, Station 19 follows a group of firefighters from the Seattle Fire Department. Based on the trailer for the two show's latest crossover event, after a Station 19 fire truck is hijacked, a patient needs to be brought on foot to Grey Sloan Memorial Hospital for treatment. Last season of Grey's Anatomy saw Dr. Meredith Gray infected Covid-19 and while in a coma, many characters from past seasons of the show returned to visit her on a beach. Although Mere

PS5 restocks: Here are the latest PS5 stock updates & how to find one

PS5 stock is selling out fast, so be sure to have your credit card ready. Looking to buy a PS5 ? Well, so are millions of other people, and the stock levels we've seen so far are tight, even nearly a year after its launch. Every time a retailer puts stock up for sale, it sells out super quickly. The longest we've seen them stay in stock is maybe 15 to 20 minutes (usually just a few minutes, though), and that's at random times, so finding one for yourself can be a truly difficult task. Sony warned that it will be hard to find stock throughout the year and well into 2022, but retailers are promising more are coming, and Sony has secured additional semiconductor chips to make them. In our PS5 review, we called it a technical marvel with a groundbreaking controller. After spending a few months with it now, it's nearly impossible to go back to the PS4. Everything about the PS5 is better , from the games to the DualSense haptic feedback . You'll definitely want to

How to watch the London Marathon: Live stream online

While it may have once again been postponed from its usual April slot, the delayed 2021 edition of the London Marathon should have a more familiar feel to proceedings this year - read on to find out how to watch this iconic race online, no matter where in the world you are. This year's event welcomes back ametuar and fun runners after last year's race was limited to elite runners, while a limited number of spectators are set to be in attendance along the 26.2-mile route through the UK capital. 2020 winner Shura Kitata returns to defend his title despite a hamstring injury against a field that boasts seven sub-2:04 marathon runners including fellow Ethiopian stars Birhanu Legese and Mosinet Geremew. Kenyan superstar and Olympic silver medalist Brigid Kosge will also be hitting London's streets once more as she looks to replicate her incredible victory in the women's race last year against a strong field of runners that also includes Ethiopia's Roza Dereje, and

Google Pixel 6 price just leaked — and it's lower than we expected

The standard Pixel 6 may only be slightly more expensive than the Pixel 5. What you need to know A new leak suggests the standard Pixel 6 will start at €649 in Europe. The Pixel 6 Pro could be priced at €899 in the old continent. It also claims that the Pixel 6 series will be announced on October 19. Last week, Brandon Lee from This is Tech Today gave us our first real-world look at Google's upcoming Pixel 6 Pro. Lee has now revealed a few more details about the upcoming Pixel 6 series phones in a new YouTube video. According to Brandon Lee's sources, the Google Pixel 6 is going to retail for €649 in Europe, while the bigger Pixel 6 Pro will be priced at €899. While it looks like the Pixel 6 Pro will be nearly as expensive as the best Android phones from Samsung, the standard Pixel 6 may only be €20 more expensive than last year's Pixel 5 . The Pixel 6's black colorway will apparently be called "carbon," while the green option could be marke
