Unreal for AR for phones and headsets

Hi

I am considering shifting from Unity to Unreal for making AR apps on phones and headsets. I have downloaded Unreal and I like the UI so far. How does Unreal work with Android and perhaps ARcore, to what extent can I make apps for Hololens etc. ?

What are the amount of tutorials in this field? Can anyone recommend a good tutorial starting from scratch for Android? (later I will be doing Iphone too of course).

I will be importing character animations.

I have not found many AR specific resources for UE4, with that said there are a ton of tutorials on creating character based games. Epic has this great series, probably a good place to start.

Once you have a solid foundation, transitioning your game to AR is pretty straight forward. I would also check out the ARSample scene provided by epic to help get you started.
