For those who have no idea what this app is even for: This provides apps on the phone with a way to use the camera and sensors to put a 3D object into your camera view. It's called augmented reality, and it's not a new thing, but Google opted to make it easier to do. Making it an app instead of hiding it in the firmware means faster updates. it works well enough, though is limited to a demo for. The world object detection is a bit... blah.

Not even .25 star My experience is as the other respondents. It tells me I need to update, but will not complete. It has downloaded a few times, but when I reload the app. the same notice appears. ARCore Update. I have restarted the game. I have not Uninstaller and reinstalled the game. Is that what is required. If so, specific instructions to that effect would be helpful.

After the recent update, a notification appeared to uninstall because it is no longer supported. I clicked to uninstall it, twice. Yet, it's still taking up space on my phone. Very few apps work properly if at all, now. More apps fail with each update. It's almost as if Samsung and Google are sending out these updates to cause issues on purpose, to force people to buy new. I'll be ditching the smartphone altogether, instead.
