How to use AR stickers on the Google Pixel or Pixel 2

Google Pixel 2 AR stickers

To kick things off, Google has provided a couple (five to be precise) of interesting sticker packs such as characters from Stranger Things, Star Wars, food items like an exhausted coffee-to-go, and a few more. Google also explained that the AR stickers can be moved around, resized, dragged around, and can also interact with the environment by responding to the camera and interacting with other characters that are placed in the scene.

Here we have added two YouTube videos, one is present above this text, and one is now below this passage which shows that how these stickers can be used and how they look with the actual image captured by a camera.

Google also released a special trailer for the Star Wars AR Stickers.

Have you used AR Stickers yet? The option to add AR stickers can be found in the nav menu on the left in the Pixel's camera app.

With AR Stickers added to Pixel 2, you can add virtual characters and playful emojis directly into your photos and videos to bring your favourite stories to life. Just tap on AR Stickers, and if this is the first time you have launched the feature, you will be walked through several of the setup items (as seen in the below screenshots). This new set of stickers was available initially only to those with a Google Pixel device.

The Google Pixel 2 XL is getting a temporary price cut in India and is now retailing at a best buy price of Rs. 64,999 for the 64GB variant and Rs. 73,999 for the Pixel 2 XL with 128GB storage. The update will give you access to AR Core as well as AR Stickers. Depending on the sticker, there are some touch controls that you can use to make the item fit the scene better. Users also need to be running on Android 8.1 Oreo, which began to trickle out to Nexus and Pixel devices sometime during the first week of December. The Assistant also gets support for new languages, including Spanish and Italian. For instance, it will take a user to the Google Maps app, if it detects that an address was copied.

This feature is powered by Google machine learning, and it can recognise addresses, phone numbers, email addresses and more. Another useful feature in Oreo 8.1 for Pixel users: Wi-Fi speed labels show you how fast nearby networks are.
