Google has never been soft on cleaning up outdated apps, andThe latest “victim”, Is the Measure app that uses AR to measure the length of objects. Measure was originally an application on the Tango AR platform, and later Google brought it to all phones that support ARCore in 2018. However, although it is claimed that the length of an object can be measured as long as the camera is pointed at it, it is not particularly accurate in actual use, and it is often closed and jumped out. In the entire life cycle of Measure, Google rarely updated its functions, and the most recent time was last year when it brought more unit conversions. Considering that Google is not very concerned about it, perhaps it is not so surprising to be terminated.

If you haven’t installed it before, you can’t see the app on Google Play now; if you have installed it before, you can continue to use it, but Google Play will also display “The app is no longer supported and will no longer be updated “
