LifeAR, a new application from Team Viewer makes it possible to help family or friends to fix problems thanks to its augmented reality supported video call assistance features. It offers video calls with up to six participants. From drawing on the screen to including Emojis, there are really interesting features in this new project.
TeamViewer launches LifeAR
The concept of this new TeamViewer application is simple to explain: LifeAR allows you to help with a video call to anyone who is far away. Not only with video and sound but also with augmented reality. Does the other person have to press a button? Point it at them on your phone and they’ll see the mark on theirs via AR.
LifeAR’s interface is very similar to any other video call app. Once an account is registered (phone number and date of birth are required), LifeAR allows up to six participants to connect with voice and video; transferring what is drawn, written, or marked from one phone to the other.
Fix problems remotely with video call assistance
All phones must support ARCore (in the case of Android) and ARKit (in the case of iPhone or iPad). Once the scene is detected, the app provides buttons to place arrows, to draw, offers Emojis, and also allows you to write text. Everything that is drawn, written, or marked from one phone will be projected on the other using augmented reality. This way the person receiving help will know exactly what to do.
LifeAR is a great app for all those who want to help any friend or family member who is far away. It’s a free app, doesn’t ask for permissions other than the camera, microphone, and contact access.
