A new augmented reality gadget and operating system are being developed by Google

Google used to be an early leader in the field of augmented reality (AR), but recently they’ve been less interested in developing their own technology for AR. Instead, they’re focusing on partnering up with companies who already specialize in AR development. However, there seems to be some evidence suggesting that we may see an increase in mobile web usage again.\

Operating systems engineer Mark Lucovsky announced his departure from Microsoft last week. He now works at Google. Before heading up Mixed Reality OS work for Meta, he worked as an architect on Windows NT at Microsoft. His current job title is Vice President of AR/VR at Google. He also posted links to some job postings at Google that indicate Google is getting just as committed to augmented reality (AR) as Apple or Microsoft.

Another listing says new employees will be working on an innovative augmented reality (AR) device. One states that Google is focused on making immersive computing available for billions of people via smartphones.

Most of these positions are located in the U.S., but there are some jobs available in Canada at North’s headquarters in Waterloo, Ontario. Google has made its own API available to allow app makers to create apps using augmented reality technology. It’s not clear whether these new features will be included in future versions of Android. And even if they aren’t, there are plenty of third party solutions out there. However, these listings show that Google isn’t just playing around any longer. Facebook has been rebranded after its founder Mark Zuckeberg used the term “Meta” to refer to his vision of building an online community where people could interact through augmented reality (AR) technology. There have been reliable reports that apple plans to release their first mixed reality headset next years, but that product is unlikely to become a mass market consumer device. Big tech companies are gearing up for an AR fight. Both Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg and Apple’s Tim Cook have described AR as the next big computing platforms after smartphones.
