Google released Just a Line, an app that lets users draw in augmented reality and share videos of their drawings. All users have to do is touch the screen to begin drawing, press record and then share their creations.

Just a Line offers people an exciting and unique chance to graffiti their apartments, a coffee shop or wherever else, without having to pay a hefty real-world fine. That being said, the technology is not perfect yet. According to Co.Design, the app works as intended about 85% of the time, sometimes leaving users frustrated because their creations may roam away or not appear exactly as the artist intended.

Just a Line is mainly an experiment intended to demonstrate the capabilities of ARCore, the AR tools that exist inside Android phones and are only just becoming available to non-Google developers. Just a Line was designed to show off the potential of ARCore quickly and to offer developers the chance to use its code to further develop and expand upon it.
