You can watch a T-Rex stomp around your garden, and even cower under a mammoth Brachiosaurus.
And you don't even need to download any apps to do it.
You can view the dinosaurs in 3D, rotating them and even zooming in to see them up close.
It also lets you get a better idea of how big the dinosaurs would've been in relation to real-world objects.4The dinosaurs appear in the real world through your phone's cameraCredit: Google
And on Android phones, you'll even be able to hear their roars and thuds of footsteps.
It's thanks to a Google partnership with 3D designers at Ludia, Amblin Entertainment and Universal Brand Development.
"To create the 3D dinosaurs, our concept artists first did preliminary research to discover information about each creature," said Camilo Sanin of Ludia, the studio behind the Jurassic World Alive game.
"Not only did we draw research from various forms of literature, our artists also worked with palaeontologists and the 'Jurassic World' team to make the assets as accurate and realistic as possible.
"Even the smallest details, such as irregularities of skin colour and patterns, are important."4On Android phones, you can hear the dinos stomping aroundCredit: Google
Here's a list of the dinosaurs you can view:
On Android, search for dinosaur or any of the 10 named dinosaurs on the Google app – or any Android browser.
Then tap 'View in 3D' and you'll be able to see the dinosaur in 3D if you're using Android 7 or later.
The latest Android version is Android 11, so you'll be fine if you have a phone bought in the last few years.
If your device is ARCore-enabled then you'll be able to glimpse the dinosaurs in the real world.
On iOS, search for dinosaur or any of the 10 dinosaurs on the Google app.
Alternatively, do the same on Google.com with Chrome or Safari.
You'll be able to see 3D and AR content on devices using iOS 11 or later.Google creates 'social distancing' AR app that puts virtual 2-metre ring around you using camera Most read in Phones & GadgetsJAW-DROPPING3D face of 'jawless' Stone Age man whose head was found on a SPIKE revealedZAP!US Marines' new weapon can electrocute enemies from 300 feet awayPORN PANICThousands of naked selfies and videos from OnlyFans site leaked onlineTIKTOK SHOCKWe showed 6 mums what kids REALLY watch on TikTok from porn to puppy slappingAPPLE CRUMBLEWhich iPhones are 'obsolete' and 'dangerous' in 2020?

Breaking News : Real Madrid brushes the League with another penalty converted by Sergio Ramos
Breaking News —
Another penalty, again Sergio Ramos. For the third time since the championship resumed, Real Madrid won thanks to a maximum penalty converted by their captain, 1-0 against Athletic (8th) in San Mamés, this Sunday on the 34th round of the League.
With this win, the seventh in a row, Real Madrid (1st) has a seven-point advantage over Barcelona (2nd), who plays this Sunday at 20:00 GMT at the Villarreal stadium (5th).
Real Sociedad, Getafe and now Bilbao. In the last three key matches the Madrid team has survived thanks to the cold blood of 34-year-old Ramos, who scored his 10th league goal on Sunday with a penalty converted to 73.
Dani García stretched out his leg and stepped on Marcelo, who remained on the ground. At first the referee did not consider a penalty, but the VAR warned him and after he went to review the play on the monitor, he punished the play. Penalty, goal and three points for the whites.
In the next play it was Ramos who stepped on Raúl García. The referee neither signaled the action nor appealed to the VAR.
Four games to go, the white giant is one step away from his 34th league title.
– Four endings –
For Zinedine Zidane, who insists on repeating that his team “has not won anything yet”, each match is a “final”. This move to San Mamés, a ‘cathedral’ of Spanish football without an audience, was the last major obstacle, before facing Alavés, Granada, Villarreal and Leganés.
Without Eden Hazard, with an injury to the right ankle, or Raphael Varane, with a blow to the cervicals, Real Madrid once again cemented the victory in an unwavering defense and in the finesse of Ramos, author of five goals in seven games since resumption.
Before, in a solid match by both sides, Marcos Asensio, the French Karim Benzema and the Brazilian Rodrigo were the most dangerous players for the white side.
For Athletic, Raúl García met Belgian Thibaut Courtois with a header and Iñaki Williams put the white defense in check with his speed.
Fortunately the end of the season, set for July 19, is approaching, because the white team has more and more difficulties to make a difference: after their comfortable 3-1 and 3-0 wins against Eibar and Valencia, Real Madrid has won in the last three days for the minimum (1-0).
