Google has replenished its “graveyard” with a new project – without warning it ceased to be supported and the Measure application was removed from the Google Play online store.
The Measure application made it easy to measure distances and dimensions of objects using augmented reality technologies. It was one of the first practical applications of Google’s augmented reality. In 2018, the Measure app became available for all smartphones with ARCore support, and before that it was exclusive to Project Tango, which closed just in 2018.
