Google’s new Star Wars AR stickers put Porgs everywhere

After months of teasing, Google’s finally brought its AR stickers to the Pixel 2. For most users with the company’s latest flagship handset, the feature will be available today as part of an Android 8.1 update.

The feature was announced on-stage at the Pixel event back in January, offering a sneak peek of a fun little addition made possible through its ARCore technology, letting users drop augmented reality characters onto their own pictures and video. It was a pretty compelling demonstration of Google’s ARKit competitor, and now its live for everyone to check out, including a couple of key product licenses.

Those Stranger Things stickers that we got to play with a few months back in here, bringing creatures from Netflix’s popular series with them. And, a mere few days ahead of the much-anticipated release of The Last Jedi, the feature brings a bunch of new content from the Star Wars universe.
