Adding augmented reality content, such as virtual objects, at a physical location currently requires the creator to be present at the location to capture a video of the scene and to add AR content. This disclosure describes the use of cloud anchors that enable a user to record a video at a location along with AR metadata such that AR content can be added to the location (or modified) at a later time when the user is at a different location. The cloud anchor can also be used for real time or offline with other users who are not at the location where the AR content is captured.
