According to a recent Forbes report, AR is expected to acquire 1 billion users by 2020.

RelayCars’ new, upgraded AR features include:

● User interface (UI) redesign for increased functionality and ease of use.
○ Allows users to be notified when the car scales to 100%.
○ Car scaling creates size-accurate representations and comparisons of the vehicles, whether it be side-by-side to another AR vehicle or placed next to a vehicle in a real-life setting.
● New button to enter vehicle for quicker access and better views of vehicle’s interior.
● New share option allows users to easily share vehicles via their social media platforms or by email.
“Every RelayCars app update we present is developed with the car shopper and their experience in mind,” said Gina Callari, COO of EVOX Images. “As the use of AR continues to grow, our newest upgrade is intended to present a more seamless way for users to find their future car through realistic technology.”
