At its I/O conference in 2019, Google announced that it would be adding augmented reality objects to Search. Over the year since, Google has a bunch of 3D animals you can view in Google Search using AR — here’s the full list.
How to find 3D animals on Google
Google’s AR objects in search are incredibly easy to access. The objects are added to search in the belief that the easiest way to learn about something is to see it. By seeing things in augmented reality (AR), users can see the scale of an object and also details they might not notice from just a simple picture.
Google’s 3D animals are different on every device. Typically speaking, you might not see AR or 3D objects on a desktop computer or laptop. Rather, you’ll need a supported smartphone to view these objects.
The good news? Most modern smartphones are supported! To view AR objects in Google Search you’ll need:
Android smartphone or tablet: Android 7.0 or higher w/ pre-installed Google Play Store
iPhone/iPad: iOS 11.0 or higher
If you’re not sure if 3D animals and other AR objects in Google Search will work, just give it a shot!
List: 3D animals available on Google Search
So, what AR animals can you view on Google Search? Technically, there’s no official list from Google for 3D animals, but there’s a number of known examples, many of which we’ve gone hands-on with so you can see how it all works in action.
Dog Labrador Retriever Pug Rottweiler
There are probably other examples we haven’t identified and, more than likely, Google is adding more over time! After all, this list has expanded since Google originally announced 3D animals in 2019.
What other AR objects are available in Google Search?
There’s more than just 3D animals in Google Search. On top of that, Google can also show some other objects. To do this, Google partners with certain websites and brands to show products, furniture, and even the human body in 3D. We’ve listed some examples below.
NASA objects Mercury Venus Earth Mars Jupiter Saturn Neptune Uranus Pluto
These examples aren’t quite as straightforward as the 3D animals, though, as the 3D models appear lower in search results alongside the websites that power them. From time to time, too, they just won’t appear. The planets, for example, appear more reliably when you add “in depth” to the search query.

Google 3D animals: how to see AR tigers, lions, penguins, pandas and wolves on Google
For parents with children staying indoors, this provides a fun new way to learn about their favourite animals.
How do I view 3D animals on Google?
To use the feature, you’ll need to google an animal, for example: ‘giant panda’.
Just underneath the image search results and the Wikipedia description of the panda, you’ll be able to see a little box that says, “Meet a life-sized giant panda up close”.
Click the ‘view in 3D’ button, then click ‘view in your space’ to see the panda in your own surroundings.
You’ll need to give Google access to your camera for it to be able to insert the panda into your space.
What animals can you find?
There are loads of different animals you can see through the feature.
It first gained popularity when people realised they could see a huge 3D panda when they googled the animal - but there’s a huge list of animals the feature works for.
But the list is endless - you and your kids could discover many more animals to learn about.
What does AR enabled mean?
In order to access this feature, your device will need to be AR enabled.
For Android users, Google requires an operating system of Android 7.0 or later, originally shipped with the Google Play store already installed, and internet access.

El truco de Google para ver un tiburón o un tigre en 3D en el salón de tu casa que triunfa en las redes sociales
Después de haber pulsado sobre el icono se abrirá la cámara del teléfono móvil y el sistema mismo lo coloca en tu pasillo, en tu ventana o encima de la mesa de tu comedor. ¡Hasta se puede mover y aumentar sus dimensiones!
It’s AR of the tiger!
Lo cierto es que esta función no es nueva: el gigante tecnológico la lanzó el año pasado. Sin embargo, el aislamiento impuesto por el coronavirus la ha vuelto a poner de moda, como tantas otras cosas.
Es compatible con los sistemas operativos iOS y Android, teniendo como único requisito que el smartphone con el que se haga sea compatible con ARCore, que es el motor de realidad aumentada de Google.
Gracias a esta divertida función de Google podrás entretenerte con los pequeños -y no tan pequeños- de la casa viendo en 3D los siguientes animales:
León -escribe también ‘animal’ para verlo-
“Una cosa es leer que un gran tiburón blanco puede medir 18 pies de largo, otra es verlo de cerca en relación con las cosas que te rodean”, afirma Google.
Y después, ya sabes: no pasa si no lo cuentas, así que puedes hacerte una fotografía con tu animal favorito y compartirla en redes sociales.

Google Play rolling out Material Theme account switcher
This new addition to the top field pushes voice search to the left, and that microphone is hidden when you first open the app to make way for the Google Play animation. Meanwhile, the nav drawer is now shorter given the absence of the switcher and is home to another logo.
The Google Play Material Theme switcher was first A/B tested last December, but is now rolling out on a handful of our devices. We’ve encountered it with version 19.3 and 19.4 of the Play Store naturally. However, you can manually enable the design element.
With version 19.3/4, visit the Google Play Store’s App info page, go to “Storage & cache,” and tap “Clear storage.” Open the app, but proceed to close it again from the system Recents/multitasking menu. After this double-step, the new account switcher will appear.
