    Hello all,

    I have been using ARCore markerless tracking and ARCore Cloud Anchors quite a bit. While the markerles tracking is very good, and is definitely "production ready" for singleplayer apps, I don't find that Cloud Anchors are "production ready" yet.

    When testing the ARCore Cloud Anchors sample app it works MOST of the time, but some times it's just WAY off - like, a meter or so off. And when it happens I get no error from ARCore, so as a developer I don't have any way to work around it. Unfortunately, it happen so frequently that I don't find Cloud Anchors production ready yet. And this is even when testing with Android devices only.

    Is there someone else with similar experiences? Do you find that Cloud Anchors are production ready yet?

    Thanks a lot.


    Kind regards,
    Uffe Flarup
