Using Cloud Anchors, your app lets users add virtual objects to an AR scene. Multiple users can then view and interact with these objects simultaneously from different positions in a shared physical space. Cloud Anchors are similar in behavior and function to anchors , but differ in that they're hosted on the ARCore Cloud Anchor service. This hosting enables users to share experiences. This requires a working Internet connection.
When shrinking your app to fit the size requirements, first try the standard APK size optimization techniques. If you need to shrink the size down further, you might need to rely on cloud delivery of assets. This document describes how to prepare assets for cloud delivery and the support options from various game engines. While the guidance in this document focuses on games, the principles apply to any app that contains large assets. When thinking about breaking up your APK for cloud delivery of assets, consider how you can split your app files into sections based on when they need to be available to the user. This timing tends to fall into the following three categories: needed always, needed at launch, and needed later. Some assets are difficult to separate into smaller blocks or are required to be bundled in the base APK. Examples include your game code and its library or engine dependencies.
