IKEA Place App Comes to Android, Powered by ARCore

The app is not complicated at all - you can draw with your finger on your phone's screen, which makes it seem like you're drawing white lines in the air around whoever is on your camera's viewfinder. It's a similar experience to the one IKEA launched with iOS 11 back in September 2017.

There is no better example of that than this new "Just a Line" app.
