5 Easy Steps To Get Google 3D Animals At Your Place and Click Pictures!
1. Start with googling for the animal you like.
For example – Giant Panda
2. Then you need to scroll down a little until you find a box that says ‘Meet a life-sized giant panda up close.’
Here, click on ‘View In 3D’.
3: Now click on ‘View in your space’.
You’ll need to give Google access to your camera for it to be able to insert the panda into your space.
4. Point the phone camera to the ground and move it around.
And voila! There’s your Giant Panda!
5. Lastly, tap on the camera button to take photos.
You can move the animal by tapping on it and dragging around. You can even use pinch-to-zoom to increase or decrease its size.
The feature is pretty cool! It’s an excellent way to see just how large some of these animals really are up close.

Also, you can go to ‘Settings’ and give the necessary permissions.
