    Hi,

    I am using ARFoundation since 6 month with success and I am needing and waiting for the cross platform image recognition feature. It says it's in the roadmap since 6 month, so does anyone has a clue what is the status of this feature ?
    Many thanks in advance,
    Alexandre

    i discovered that i can use both arkit 2.0 (https://bitbucket.org/Unity-Technologies/unity-arkit-plugin/) with its Image Tracking feature and latest AR Foundation + ARKit packages in the same app!
    obviously i have separate scenes.. but at least they can live together...

    if only ARFoundation could enable image tracking on iOS it would be much simpler

    Image tracking is already available in the staging packages, so ARFoundation should have this within the next week or two. Devs said it's just going through QA before release.

    It is there but how does it work ? I've added a "AR Image Tracking Manager" to my session origin and added a "AR Image" to a cube but it doesnt track it.

    The sample for image tracking has an "AR Tracked Image Manager" and "Tracked Image Info Manager" components on the "AR Session Origin". However, on Android, it never detects any of the images from the Reference Library. Suggestions anyone?
