Now Google is firing back with an app also called Measure.Actually Google technically beat Apple to the punch. Measure has been available for a while on Tango devices (remember Tango?). But this is the first time Google has felt confident enough in its AR tech to bring it to other Android phones. The app works with any phone that’s compatible with Google’s AR Core platform, which includes most recent flagships.
