Meta Releases Spark AR Go for Android, iOS


This week, Meta announced it will be distributing its ‘Spark augmented reality (AR) Go’ mobile application as a beta version for Android and iOS smartphones.

Meta built the mobile application to accompany its Spark AR Studio software development kit (SDK), a powerful tool that enables webAR effects and 3D content found in its lineup of social media platforms such as Instagram and Facebook.

‘Spark AR Go’ enables AR content creators to develop, test, and publish immersive experiences for Meta’s social media platforms, as well as track user performance, metrics, and receive community feedback.

At the moment, Spark AR Go is only available as a closed beta programme where users can sign-up for access to the app and its updates, meaning Meta will select individuals for beta testing on a rolling basis.

Spark AR Software development Kit

The Spark ARSDK offers an intuitive platform that is easy to use for both veteran and novice AR/3D developers.

In addition, the powerful SDK has various online supplementary tutorials, resources, and seminars available to provide new developers with essential assistance.

Meta also offers four apps —Spark AR Studio, Spark AR Player, Player for Desktop, and Spark AR Hub—for MacOS, Windows, and mobile devices to promote democratised webAR content creation.

The news comes after the Menlo Park-based company produced ‘Spark AR Foundations,’ a series of learning courses to introduce new developers to the Spark ARSDK.

Last month, the Delhi Technological University’s Society of Robotics (SRDTU) also partnered with Meta and Reskill to host ‘Spark DTU,’ an online workshop to educate all developer levels of Spark ARSDK.

Developments from the Spark AR team come just months after Meta’s Connect event 2021, where Mark Zuckerberg, Meta CEO, debuted his company’s Project Aria AR smart glasses.

The new Spark AR Go mobile app and pre-existing tools, SDKs, and seminars will establish a strong development and distribution ecosystem to support Meta’s upcoming Project Aria.
