Google Brings Augmented Reality Stickers App to Pixel & Pixel 2 Devices

13 December 2017

You can use Foodmoji and 3D Text stickers when you're feeling hungry; or shoot a celebratory video at your New Year's party with AR balloons and champagne. In a similar effort, Google introduced "Stranger Things" and "Star Wars" branded AR sticker sets.

Alongside the announcement of the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL, Google unveiled AR Stickers: augmented reality objects that you can drop into your photos that take advantage of the company's new ARCore platform. At the time, Google touted AR Stickers based on characters from the popular Netflix series, Stranger Things. These AR stickers allow users to place 3D digital objects inside of their smartphone's camera viewfinder. With the Star Wars: The Last Jedi worldwide release coming up, the AR emoji pack comes at a good time. That should bring up options for Slow Motion, Panorama, Photo Sphere, Lens Blur, Settings, and AR Stickers.

In order to try out the AR stickers, a user just has to open the camera app, switch to AR Stickers mode and choose a sticker pack.

The photographic world of Pixel and Pixel 2 owners just got more interesting now that Google Inc. has released its augmented reality stickers. If you're unable to see that, then you need to update your smartphone to the latest Android 8.1 Oreo.

Before venturing into the Google camera app in search of AR Stickers, make sure that you have updated it. Individuals can update their apps through the Google Play Store, under the Update section. We'll also show you how to get it running on the OnePlus 3, OnePlus 3T, and Xiaomi Mi 5 thanks to the work of a developer on our forum. If you'd like to remove a sticker, tap on the one you'd like to remove, then tap the trash icon at the top right of your screen. In this case, the first selection consists of Star Wars and Stranger Things characters. You can also use multi-touch gestures to resize it, rotate it, or move vertically up and down. The lucky bunch of smartphone users who have been able to update their smartphones to Android 8.1 OS, will find the stickers inside the official Google camera app in the next couple of days.

The fans will love the possibilities that they will have with cosplay and putting the AR emojis in their pictures and videos.
