And now Pixel 2 owners, as well as those rocking an OG Pixel running Android 8.1, can get a small taste of what's to come with the new AR Stickers pack. You can move the elements around, resize and rotate them, and they'll even interact with the other characters in the scene.
The fans will love the possibilities that they will have with cosplay and putting the AR emojis in their pictures and videos. On top of that, you need to make sure that you have installed and updated the ARCore and AR Stickers applications from the Play Store. Google will keep on adding more stickers in the future. When you update the ARCore framework to the latest version and download the stickers pack (linked at the end of the article), you'll get a new option in the Camera app that says "AR Stickers".
You can check out the Star Wars stickers in the video below or the image above and overall they look pretty great. The £50 discount on the phones will be available until December 16, while for the free Home Mini you can order a Pixel 2 or 2 XL until the end of the year. After launching ARCore on Pixel and Galaxy S8 smartphones, Google wants to have 100 million Android devices supported by the technology, TechCrunch reported in August.
AR Stickers finally arrive on Pixel phones from today
Google tested its AR Stickers App during the launch of Pixel 2. AR stickers on the Pixel phones' camera can be used for both videos and photos. For postpaid users, the additional data can be carried over from one month to the next with a maximum cap of 200GB.
There are many creative ways through which you can utilize the AR stickers. Plus, the Assistant now speaks new languages, including Spanish and Italian. Another useful feature in Oreo 8.1 for Pixel users: Wi-Fi speed labels show you how fast nearby networks are. SmartSelect recognises text when long pressed, highlights the relevant word (s), and then recommends a next logical step via a suggested app, like taking users to Maps if copy an address. This feature is powered by machine learning, and it can recognise addresses, phone numbers, email addresses and more.More news: Meteor shower to fly across Norway's skies
