Augmented Reality is a feature that allows you to bring your Animal into real life through using your devices camera on compatible devices. This feature was originally discontinued on April 27, 2022, but brought back on July 29, 2022.


Augmented Reality uses the device’s camera and AR software to create a 3D model of any animal on your account and bring it into the real world. The software scans for a flat surface to place your animal. Once a flat surface is found, it will let you choose which animal you would like to use. When the animal has spawned in, you can make it do various things like actions, make your animal bigger or smaller and move it around.


The Augmented Reality button is located under the setting button on compatible devices. The Augmented Reality interface has a range of buttons at the bottom.
