With Chrome 81 Beta for Android, it’s now possible to use immersive Augmented Reality in the browser. I have again created two variations of the original demo source code to show what is easily possible.

Chrome 79 Beta is out and with it the public support of the WebXR Device API. This API is about accessing virtual and augmented reality devices. One usable device is in your pocket or lying next to you on the desk or you are even reading this blog post with it: your mobile phone. So let’s play around a bit and see what can be done.
