Google officially launched its Tango smartphone augmented reality system for consumers after two years of working on the project. Presently it is available on Lenovo’s $499 Phab2 Pro which will be launched in the US market today. Tango offers gamers a chance to improve their gaming sessions.

The apps to actually watch for are the non-gaming apps like the iStaging which allows a user to change the positions inside a room or add new furniture and see how it would appear. This app would highlight Tango’s high-end mapping capabilities. Another app Matterport’s Scene allows the user to use volumetric 3D.

Tango will function alongside Google Daydream, the company’s virtual reality effort.AR gaming will help unleash a virtual playground for users. At present 35 Tango apps are presently available to enhance the potential of the Lenovo Phab 2 Pro. However, in comparison to the software the hardware used is decent and doesn’t hold any additional features.
