Augmented Reality stickers are now live on the Google Pixel Pixel 2 Here's how they work

Google also released a special trailer for the Star Wars AR Stickers. As for the Pixel users, AR Stickers will be available on your phones starting today so keep an eye on the camera app. And yes, you can select various popular characters from "Star Wars: The Last Jedi", like BB-8, a stormtrooper, or a porg.

The owners of Pixel phones running the recent release of Android 8.1 Oreo now have access to AR stickers that can be overlaid on reality such as 3-D text, gnomes and now even Imperial stormtroopers and TIE Fighters from "Star Wars". This release was made in concert with the release of Star Wars: The Last Jedi, which hits theaters later this week. Now, the company has launched the AR stickers app for the Pixel devices. This means that, till December 31, the Google Pixel 2 XL will be available at Rs 64,999 for the 64GB variant, and Rs 73,999 for the one with 128GB storage. As an example, if you put Stranger Things' telekinetic heroine Eleven in scene with the Demogorgan the two will engage in a very short battle (Eleven wins, obviously). Just visit the Play Store links below to update the ARCore framework and download the AR Stickers app. Users of these devices will have to go to the My Apps section and find them under Updates. Other AR Stickers are centered around food (pizza, burgers) and celebrations (AR champagne).

This app does not work on its own - it's part of the standard Google camera app.

The AR stickers are in the form of virtual characters that can interact with each other, rather than being static ones that are just superimposed into your photos. With several to choose from for each pack, you're able to let your imagination run riot to create some unique photos and videos to send to friends. The camera app will now ask you to drag stickers to the viewfinder.

Google has launched what it calls the Best Buy offer, under which the new Pixel 2 XL has received a temporary price cut. The Stranger Things will definitely be an exciting option for all Stranger Things fans as it has been one of the best TV phenomenon in the year 2017.
