Google Pixel 2 Gets New Star Wars AR Stickers

13 December 2017

Google has also launched two two branded sticker sets: Stranger Things and Star Wars for making this new feature a fun. You can also resize stickers with a pinch-to-zoom gesture. Enabling this will let you superimpose a bunch of Augmented Reality objects in your surroundings and capture pictures or selfies with them. The best thing about AR stickers is that even the older Pixel devices will be getting it in the Android 8.1 Oreo update. Google just recently announced that it's rolling the feature out to all Pixel devices running Android 8.1 Oreo. 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.

Even if there isn't a lot of content available right now, Google plans to unveil even more AR Stickers soon, so keep an eye out. That's pretty much it, and all the stickers in the world - namely, Google stickers - including the Stranger Things and Star Wars characters are at the users' fingertips. 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". These AR stickers allow users to place 3D digital objects inside of their smartphone's camera viewfinder. That refers to the Google Pixel XL, Pixel, Pixel 2, and Pixel 2 XL respectively. Google will release more AR Sticker packs in the future. This will upgrade your camera and will enable all the Star Wars and Strange Thing stickers. Then, you'll be able to start placing stickers in your surroundings, which is as simple as dragging and dropping them. You can also find a coffee and a doughnut that come to life, a weightlifting broccoli and a boombox with legs. 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 you long press, highlights the relevant words, and then recommends a next logical step through a suggested app-for example, it'll take you to Google Maps if you copy an address. From there its simply a case of selecting a character and placing them into whatever environment you're viewing through you phone's camera.
