Excited to get started with ARCore? Make sure you have the framework app installed (opens in new tab) and get ready for some exciting new apps to head your way!
Updated August 2019: This article was updated with a complete list of all the phones that support ARCore.

Awesome news, any chance for an article showcasing good ARcore apps?
Good call. I didn't even know it was available on my phone til I saw this.
I'd like to see this too
Came here to post exactly that. AC, shows us the apps we should try.
Both V30's require Oreo, not just the plus. smh.
G6 as well apparently.
My G6 says it's not compatible, I am guessing it needs Oreo
Anyone have the Zenfone AR?
Does this need Oreo?
According to Google, Android 7.0 or higher is the current limitation for phones that could eventually be supported.
OnePlus 5T as well? OnePlus5 is basically the same phone (sans different screen).
I have the Oneplus 5t and have arcore installed (it came when I tried to view dinosaurs in Jurassic World Live. I'm able to use the Tower AR game too.
Kinda surprised that OnePlus has the AR core as, it's, screen is only 1080p but then maybe I'm confusing it with VR.
The 5T doesn't support it. I find this odd since the oneplus 5 and 5t are basically the same phones
Kind of odd that the U11 and Plus are not supported. The S7/S7 Edge are kind of sluggish in terms of performance, so it's kind of odd that they ARE on the list.
It might be ready for 12 of the 13 phones listed, but not the S8. I downloaded it with no issues, it installed, but no way to access the program. No icon, no "Open" button in Google Play Store, no directory hidden or visible on device or sd card. I'll try to download it again in a couple of days. Will definitely change my star rating once I can play with it myself. The videos and reviews look fantastic. Can't wait. Please fix.
It's a framework, not an app. You still have to install apps that use the framework.
How about that S7? March 2016 and still going strong.
Tried to download ARCore from Google Play to my Galaxy S9+ and it tells me it's incompatible. What up?
It's sadly not available on the unlocked version, I confirmed that with a Samsung rep
I'm running Oreo on my Verizon LG V30 ThinQ and I still can't use AR Core.
No use for it. Just using the camera app with AR stickers makes phones run incredibly hot, and drains the battery like an old V8 car with the pedal to the floor.
How come my Moto X4 does not come with ARCore and G5 does? It is a lesser phone. I'm confused.
I have it on my Android One X4.
Why the Nokia 6 (2018) and Nokia 8 Sirocco but not the Nokia 7 plus? All released the same year/time. That's a disappointment...
Maybe because the 7 Plus didn't get a US release.
HTC U12+ not support this?
Hehe so glad the Pixel 2 XL support the AR Core but then again it is a Google phone.
This is very confusing... I know the LG V30 is listed as compatible but the ARCore app is listed as unavailable for my device in the Google Play store because it isn't compatible. The kicker is that I was able to download AR core and install it on my V30 a couple months back from the Play Store when it was shown as available for my device. I've even tried some ARCore apps and they work as expected. Did anyone else download and install prior to them marking it as incompatible?
Not available for my device (sprint lgv30+)
No HTC? Yikes. That said, props to Asus and Google for getting ARCore support to the Zenfone AR after it shipped with Tango.
No HTC huh? Sheesh.
Could anyone provide the apk?
You'll find the Nokia 7 plus does come with it too
Why is the OnePlus 5T not listed in there?
Mate 10 Pro here. Device not compatible with this version.
The Nokia 8 should be on that list as it was added fairly recently.
Nice, my S8 got it :)
OnePlus 6 seems to work fine with the demo apps
The Nokia 7 Plus also supports ARCore.
Nokia 8 is missing from the complete list.
Sony XZ2 suppor it,. Installed with out any issues.
Installed ok on Nokia 8. Just need apps/programs to use it with....... Any ideas?
You are missing A LOT of devices. Here's the official list of devices from Google itself https://developers.google.com/ar/discover/supported-devices
Hopefully google will work with same sung and others so that the core will be able to be used in older phones like the Note 5 and NOT just the new phones!
Well it doesn't work on my P20 Pro. Any suggestions?
