As every family in Nigeria stay together to observe the ‘stay at home’ directive issued by the government so as to curb the spread of Coronavirus in the country, people have been engaging in one activity or the other to keep themselves occupied.
As seen on Twitter, Google has given people the chance to view some certain animals in their living space in 3D and Nigerian parents are having a field day with the feature.
Some Nigerians have taken to Twitter to share images of wild animals in their homes and the reaction of their kids/parents to it.
To use the Google 3D animals feature, you have to make sure you have your phone or tablet. For Android users, Google requires an operating system of Android 7.0 or later. For iPhone users, you need to be running iOS 11.0 or later.
Whether you are an Android or iPhone user, all you need to do is open the Google app on your device, search for an animal in the search bar and just underneath the search results and the Wikipedia description of the animal, you’ll be able to see a box that says, “Meet a life-sized lion up close”. Click the “view in 3D” button that will be clearly displayed, then click “view in your space” to see the animal in your own surroundings.
Google will then ask to access to your camera for it to be able to insert the animal into your space.
Animals that you can view in 3D in your living space are Lion, Tiger, Cheetah, Shark, Hedgehog, Duck, Emperor penguin, Wolf, Angler, fish, Goat, Rottweiler, Snakes, Eagle, Brown, bear, Alligator, Horse, Shetland pony, Macaw, Pug, Turtle, Cat, Octopus, Dog.
