And ahead of Star Wars: The Last Jedi, Pixel users can also get a pack of Star Wars-themed AR stickers. Otherwise, you can change the size of the 3D characters by pinching with your fingers, move them up and down by swiping with two fingers, and rotate them by spinning clockwise or counterclockwise with two fingers. After you have updated AR Core and AR Stickers apps on your phone, you will get a new mode in the camera app called AR Stickers. Google just recently announced that it's rolling the feature out to all Pixel devices running Android 8.1 Oreo. Today, the tech giant has finally launched AR Stickers for the Pixel phones.

In the camera department, the Google Pixel 2 XL sports a 12.2-megapixel rear sensor with dual-LED flash.

You can check out the Star Wars stickers in the video below or the image above and overall they look pretty great. This time around, it's taking things to the next level with the AR Stickers app that's powered by ARCore.

For the 64GB Google Pixel 2 the price has dropped by $80 from $1079 to $999, the 128GB has been reduced by $100 to $1129 and the Pixel 2 XL 128GB has also been slashed by $100 to $1449.

These AR stickers have been built with ARCore, Google's new framework for phone-based augmented reality (AR) experiences. After launching ARCore on Pixel and Galaxy S8 smartphones, Google wants to have 100 million Android devices supported by the technology, TechCrunch reported in August.

If you are in the market for getting a brand new flagship smartphone, the Google Pixel 2 is now one of your best bets. 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. Just open the Play Store, go to "My apps & games", and update them. Fortunately, Android 8.1 is officially available for the Google Nexus 6P, so that's not a problem. SmartSelect recognises text when you long press, highlights the relevant words, and then recommends a next logical step through a suggested app-for example, it'll take you to Google Maps if you copy an address.

After updating both the applications, you can head over to the stock camera application and swipe from the left, where you can see "AR Stickers" feature.
