One thing to keep kids and adults entertained is seeing a 3D animal in your house or garden: Head over to Google Search app or Chrome, and look for an animal in the search box. Next, tap on “View in 3D,” and a 3Dmodel will appear on your screen. You can rotate and get a 360-degree view of the animal.
