google: Google brings the AR art museum Pocket Gallery to the web


Google Pocket gallery was introduced in 2018, but was only limited to AR-enabled smartphones to access and view works of art from the art museum. The company doesn’t go a step further and has brought the feature to the web.
This means that anyone who wants to access the Google Pocket Gallery no longer needs an AR-enabled smartphone. The Pocket Gallery can now be accessed over the web on any device with or without AR support.
The function was only accessible via AR-enabled smartphones and the Art & Culture app from Google. Also, users need to find a flat surface such as a tabletop or floor to explore the gallery.
Now all users have to do is visit the Google Arts and Culture website to access the Pocket Gallery section. You can select an exhibition and explore it directly in the web browser. Users can also use the mouse to move the image, scroll up and down, or zoom in and out.
Some exhibitions also have an audio guide that informs visitors about the highlights of the exhibitions.
In addition, Google, in collaboration with the Réunion des musées nationaux – Grand Palais (Rmn-GP) in France, has introduced a new exhibition to the collection. The exhibition includes a guided tour of maritime stories, stormy landscapes and light-flooded shores.
