Project Tango's swan song will take place on 1 March 2018 when Google will stop support for the platform completely. Google is now working on software-based ARCore and it is very similar to project Tango.
We have seen how impressive Google's machine learning can turn out to be. Thank you to our incredible community of developers who made such progress with Tango over the last three years.
Google first launched "Project Tango" back in 2014. The discontinuation of the research project will make way for ARCore as Google's augmented reality platform of choice. Asus brought a more refined version of the Tango with its Zenfone AR that comes loaded with flagship-level specifications along with the sleek and premium look.

McCown, who is done for the season, has already hinted at the idea that this might have been his last season playing football. Now the Jets are without Wilkerson in The Big Easy and will nearly certainly part ways with him in the coming months.

Or do they just have players who are mentally focused and can deliver in key moments? Tadic. They have a lot of good players.
The biggest problem with Tango was speed and accuracy.
Well, the requirement of specialized hardware is one of the reasons why Project Tango wasn't adopted as widely as it should have been. The Phab2 Pro was the first smartphone that supported Project Tango, and, the ZenFone AR is the first smartphone that supported both Project Tango and Google Daydream. But, that will soon reach to other companies too because, Google already has a host of other companies on board like LG, Huawei, ASUS and more. But we may see more support on other phones in the near future, as ARCore matures. In the near future, the platform is expected to receive an OS-wide implementation. This does not come across as a surprise because Google had already confirmed in August 2017 that they plan on saying goodbye to Tango.
"Whereas Tango required special hardware, ARCore is a fast, performant, Android-scale SDK that enables high-quality augmented reality across millions of qualified mobile devices", writes Google in a developer blog entry discussing the shutdown of Tango. "ARCore" is scalable across the Android ecosystem as it doesn't require any additional hardware.
