Google, earlier this year, added a bunch or animals to its augmented reality (AR) based 3D Search results. The list included emperor penguins, eagles, giant pandas, horses, lions and sharks among others. Now, nearly four months later, the company has added a bunch of creepy insects to the list.

Compared to the natural size of these insects, the first time you see them on your smartphone in 3D they will appear in a large size. Thankfully, Google has added a functionality that lets users pinch in to reduce the size of the insect that they are viewing. This makes them slightly less creepy than the enlarged ones.

If you haven't tried this feature before, here's what you need to do:

It is worth noting that not all phones support this functionality. This is due to the absence of support for Google AR Core. All newer iPhone models support this feature. This includes iPhone 11 series, iPhone X series, iPhone 8 series, iPhone 7 series, iPhone 6 series and the iPhone SE. As far as the Android phones are concerned, the list of phones that support this functionality includes Asus' ROG Phones, Pixel smartphones and Samsung's Galaxy S-series and Galaxy Note series smartphones among others.
