To use the feature, you’ll need to google an animal, for example: ‘giant panda’. Just underneath the image search results and the Wikipedia description of the panda, you’ll be able to see a little box that says, “Meet a life-sized giant panda up close”. Click the ‘view in 3D’ button, then click ‘view in your space’ to see the panda in your own surroundings. You’ll need to give Google access to your camera for it to be able to insert the panda into your space.
