The search giant and the technology company are set to work together to bring augmented reality (AR) apps to smartphones and tablets in 2018, according to a post on the Google+ group on the Oculus website.
The announcement comes less than a month after Google unveiled its own AR headset, the Google Daydream VR headset.
The two companies have been working together for the past year to make AR apps available on both mobile devices and virtual reality headsets.
Google and Apple have been collaborating on AR apps since 2016, when they teamed up on the first augmented reality headset, called Project Tango.
The headsets use cameras on the front of the phone to project a 3D image into the user’s field of view.
Google’s Tango VR headset is a headset with two AR sensors, which track the position of the user as they walk or run, and an accelerometer, which measures the force exerted by the head and body.
Google has also built a series of AR apps that let users see, hear, and feel virtual objects.
Google says it’s working on AR applications for a variety of devices, including VR headsets and AR accessories.
Google CEO Sundar Pichai and Apple CEO Tim Cook are expected to attend the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, in early 2018.
