Google 3D animals- how to see AR giant pandas, hedgehogs, lions, penguins and wolves on Google

1st Apr 2020

For parents with children staying indoors, this provides a fun new way to learn about their favourite animals.

How do I view 3D animals on Google?

To use the feature, you’ll need to google an animal, for example: ‘giant panda’.

Just underneath the image search results and the Wikipedia description of the panda, you’ll be able to see a little box that says, “Meet a life-sized giant panda up close”.

Click the ‘view in 3D’ button, then click ‘view in your space’ to see the panda in your own surroundings.

You’ll need to give Google access to your camera for it to be able to insert the panda into your space.

What animals can you find?

There are loads of different animals you can see through the feature.

It first gained popularity when people realised they could see a huge 3D panda when they googled the animal - but there’s a huge list of animals the feature works for.
