JigSpace enables you to create 3D presentations and augmented reality experiences using the Windows or Mac desktop application then publish them for viewing on Android devices with our Universal AR viewer.
Android users can launch the augmented reality content from:
- Clicking a share link
- Scanning a QR code.
- Embedded inside a website.

Unlike Apple's iOS, there are many fragmented variants of the Android operating system, supporting both high, mid, and low-end devices. Some of these variants have AR features removed or disabled. This means they need to be configured to run AR, or may not be supported at all.
Follow these troubleshooting tips to get AR working on your Android device.
