We had told you a few days ago about how you could see Google's 3D animals in your room. Introduced last year at Google I/O, the search giant added a whole listo animals and planets to the repertoire for everyone to see.

However, some people have been facing issues with this.

While all phones support the 'View in 3D' option, many phones have been creating problems when people tried to use the 'View in your space' option to get the 3D image of the animal or planet in their rooms.

This is happening because all phones support the 'View in 3D' option, but not all phones have Google's ARCore support which is needed to get these animals into your space.

The latest Android and iOS phones would not be facing this issue. But if you are, you need to check if your smartphone supports Google ARCore. And that you have to do by checking to see whether the Google Play Services for AR app is installed on your device or not.

If it is not, you need to go over to the Play Store listing to make sure the AR app is updated to the latest version - 1.16 for now.

Here are some of the phones that support the ARCore, so take a look.
