Augmented Reality-AR seems to be a significant future technology, and with each passing day, it is getting more and more heed from the Tech world. With this article let us learn what is AR Zone Application that can be found in Samsung smartphones after the One UI 2.5 update?
Some major tech giants have been investing in their AR technology, and moving forward you will see a lot more joining the race. Facebook with their Spark AR technology has been making quite some noise lately, Apple too has been working on their technology.
Let’s get started with what Augmented Reality is, then we will move ahead with Samsung’s AR Zone Application.
What is AR – Augmented Reality Technology?
Augmented Reality in simple words uses information like Text, Image, Sound to create illusional 3D holographic images in a user’s real-world environment. It adds extra digital elements to the camera to gather and deploy way more information than a regular camera.
Unlike Virtual Reality – VR, users do not emerge into a completely virtual environment in AR, rather, an interactive holographic image will be merged into the user’s real-world environment.
Watch the video below to learn how it actually works.
What is AR Zone App?
AR Zone App is Samsung’s effort to develop its augmented reality technology, it is right now only available for Samsung users with One UI 2.5 and later.
Samsung is still trying to develop the AR Zone application and will be continuing to update the application frequently. With each update, we can expect to be seeing new features and fixes.

NOTE: There were previously a couple of extra features inside the application which have since been removed with the latest install. The reason can be anything from not-so-good response or not that exciting.
Can Non-Samsung Users Use the AR Zone App?
Now the question arises if a user doesn’t use a Samsung smartphone, will they be able to use the application? The short answer is NO.
The application can only be used on a Samsung device, as the application cannot be downloaded from the store.
