Google adds 3D monuments to AR Search results: How to use

Google has added new 3D monuments feature to its AR Search results. The feature is now live for both Android and iOS devices, with it allowing users to be able to view 98 monuments in 3D view.

These monuments include Big Ben, Eiffel Tower, Louvre Museum, and Tokyo Skytree to name a few. No Indian monuments were available in 3D view when we checked. However, we expect the company to continuously update the list to include more 3D monuments in its AR Search results.
