Google to stop Tango, carry on with ARCore

The official support for the Project Tango will come to halt from March 1, 2018. ATAP, Google's advanced technology and projects lab, developed Tango but it was soon succeeded by ARCore. Unlike Project Tango, it did not need any new sensors and could be rapidly rolled out to millions of iPhones.

Google pronounced Project Tango's death sentence via a tweet, where they stated that they would drop support for the program on 1 March, 2018.

"Thank you to our incredible community of developers who made such progress with Tango over the last three years. We look forward to continuing the journey with you on ARCore".

Google is aiming to streamline different devices with the ARCore platform. For instance, Asus earlier this year launched Project Tango-based Zenfone AR.

First launched in 2014, Tango (formerly Project Tango) was a design for a camera that could actually detect depth and motion, opening up all kinds of new applications. The first Tango phone for consumers was the Lenovo Phab2 Pro, which had a big 6.4-inch display with large Tango camera modules on the rear (see above). Also, the phones that supported project Tango were pricey due to the required hardware.

Still, fairly recently Google seemed committed to Tango. However ARCore's mission is to bring AR to all phones.

Still, ARCore's software development kit is very similar to Tango's, so although the latter is getting sunsetted, it will live on its predecessor, albeit in a more versatile way. It's already running on the Pixel phones with a selection of AR stickers in the camera app. ARCore can't "see" in 3D like Tango devices can with the help of the additional sensors, but it can render objects in the viewfinder and track their position in the real world well enough.
