Google recently introduced Google Lens in the Google Assistant on Pixel so users can learn more about the world around them.

Google recently rolled out Android 8.1 Oreo update to supported Pixel and Nexus devices, and the AR Stickers are available only for Pixel and PIxel 2 smartphones running Android 8.1 Oreo.

Unfortunately, the image quality when using AR Stickers is visibly decreased and you can't tap to focus, meaning that close-ups are off the table right now.

And now Pixel 2 owners, as well as those rocking an OG Pixel running Android 8.1, can get a small taste of what's to come with the new AR Stickers pack.

Scroll down and find AR Stickers.

After working on the Augmented Reality (AR) for a few years under the Tango project, Google developed the ARcore with the inputs from its previous AR experience. And yes, you can select various popular characters from "Star Wars: The Last Jedi", like BB-8, a stormtrooper, or a porg. The best thing about AR stickers is that even the older Pixel devices will be getting it in the Android 8.1 Oreo update. With the Augmented Reality stickers, the user can add the available characters from the app into their photos and videos.

Bouvier, in turn, sold it to Russian billionaire Dmitry Rybolovlev for US$127.5 million in 2014. The post displayed an image of the 500-year-old work but did not identify its owner.


Before venturing into the Google camera app in search of AR Stickers, make sure that you have updated it. Individuals can update their apps through the Google Play Store, under the Update section.

The Pixel 2 XL also feature always-on display to show you notifications, and the song that is playing on your smartphone.

If you are in the market for getting a brand new flagship smartphone, the Google Pixel 2 is now one of your best bets.

Another best hit that will be included in the AR emojis collection is the Stranger Things AR emojis pack. Google will release more AR Sticker packs, says the company. 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.

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.

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