Augmented reality with Google’s Pixel smartphones

By Zoe Hyett

If you’re the owner of a Google Pixel smartphone, then you can use the Pixel camera to bring your stories to life with animated and interactive AR Stickers.

The whole idea of Google Pixel’s augmented reality is that it allows you to add animated characters into your own live camera scene. A lot of these characters are very realistic and you will often benefit from promotional packs, such as Stormtroopers from Star Wars & the crew from Stranger Things.

Google have even just released a new update which means that you can download additional sticker packs and drag unwanted stickers to the on-screen bin. Stickers packs that are currently available include Blocks, Foodmoji and Winter Sports. Another fun option is that you can add floating text to your own scene, great for celebrations such as birthdays or amateur productions.
