  • Google’s “AR Stickers” app is now available for Pixel phones

The thing AR Stickers is it's limited to only the Pixel and Pixel 2.

JB Hi-Fi is also adding in another bonus, if you buy a Pixel 2 or 2 XL you'll get a free Google Home Mini.

Google launched much awaited augmented Star Wars reality stickers for its Pixel and Pixel 2 smartphones. As announced in October, popular characters from Netflix's Stranger Things such as Eleven and the Demogorgon will be available in the sticker packs. There are also Foodmojis (3D emojis based on food), 3D Text stickers, and a miscellaneous category with boom box, money, and champagne stickers. From here the camera app will map out the floor/ground of your surroundings and you can just drag and drop the stickers of your choosing into the scene. 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. You can move, resize and rotate the stickers, and they interact with other characters in the scene. 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 handsets are required to be running on the latest Android Oreo 8.1 operating system. 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. The Lens will identify landmarks, a famous painting, etc and give information to the user in real-time.

Therefore, if you have been looking to extract some fun out of your new Pixel 2 or even the first generation Pixel from 2016, then you can be heading for some these new AI features to play around. And 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.

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

This feature is powered by Google machine learning, and it can recognise addresses, phone numbers, email addresses and more. There's seemingly no limit to the number of stickers you can set down, but be warned: once you get to about 10, things can really slow down, and your phone is likely to get quite warm.
