Google 3D Animals
Google augmented reality lets you meet life-sized animals up close
If like our family you’ve been in lockdown and practising social distancing due to the situation with COVID-19 you might enjoy a virtual trip to the zoo thanks to Google 3D Animals.
It’s a fun way for children to learn more about their favourite animals, and best of all you don’t need to leave the house to enjoy it.
All you need to get started is a smartphone or compatible device (full specs below) and Google Chrome or the Google Search app.
- Android smartphone or tablet: Android 7.0 or higher w/ pre-installed Google Play Store
- iPhone/iPad: iOS 11.0 or higher
You just need do a Google Search for one of the animals and you’ll find this screen:
