Google hasÂ announcedÂ the release of more than 60 Google ARCore apps on Play Store this week. After only a few weeks of launching theÂ Googleâ€™s ARCoreÂ version 1.0, the company has opened the floodgates toÂ new augmented reality apps and games.
For the unacquainted, ARCore is a Google platform that allows developers to create augmented reality apps for Android devices.
Just by using the deviceâ€™s camera, the app can track your real-time position and insert digitally generated objects into the real world for a more intense and engaging experience.
This latest development brings enhanced AR experiences to over 100 million devices through more than a dozen different deviceÂ models.
It would allow people to interact with the world in new ways through the lens of augmented reality apps and games.

Other exciting games such asÂ Walking Dead Our WorldÂ have been released, but their availability might depend from country to country at present.
In this exciting game, you will find yourself in the middle of a zombie apocalypse. You will have to fight with zombies in a real-world environmentÂ to complete your missions.
As of now, there are only a handful of AR apps and games available in the Play Store and more apps are expected to arrive later.
