Welcome back to the In Reality podcast, covering all things Augmented & Virtual Reality. In Reality features industry news, commentary, and perspective from AR/VR veterans and experts.

In Reality is co-hosted by Marxent’s Joe Johnson and Joe Bardi. Johnson is the Creative Director at Marxent, and has been in the AR/VR industry for four and a half years following a stint on Microsoft’s Office UX team. Bardi is Marxent’s Senior Content Strategist, and has been in the industry for a year, after having spent more than a decade in print and TV media.

In this week’s episode, we’re talking the just-announced Google ARCore platform. Google’s answer to Apple’s ARKit will add markerless AR functionality to a wide range of Android devices starting this winter — even if that means the death of Tango. But will ARCore be enough to halt Apple’s AR momentum, even as this year’s iPhones are rumored to be making AR a key feature?
