Google’s augmented reality (AR) stickers are here, for some

Google presented augmented reality (AR) stickers back on October 4 during the company’s Made By Google 2017 event. They have now been released and are available on the Pixel and Pixel 2 models given that you have a few things.

To get your hands on the AR stickers, go to Google’s Play store and make sure you download both AR Core and AR Stickers (links available below). As of the time this post was written, only users with Android 8.1 Oreo installed on their Pixel or Pixel 2 device seem to be able to download the two apps and use the AR stickers. Hopefully, eligibility will be found across more devices as Google’s new software continues to roll out.

AR stickers permit the user to add digital stickers to pictures and share them with just a few taps. Google defines AR stickers as being a mode you can access through the Pixel camera app. You will be able to add 3D looking, digital stickers to your Google camera app while taking photos and videos. Just slide out the menu from the left side within the camera app on your compatible device and press the new ‘AR stickers’ option. The stickers use Google’s AR technology, which makes them seem like they are actually part of the picture. Users will be able to drag and drop the moving stickers into the scene, resize them, snap a picture or record a video, and share them as usual.

As of right now, sticker packs are limited to only Star Wars, Stranger Things and a bunch of Google’s characters. However, Google plans to release more sticker packs soon.
