With the use of new AR technology, the stickers appear to be original. A testing done by clicking an image with these augmented labels looks like the characters are standing with the person inside a photo. The feature is available in both photograph and video mode.

Google has tried to make it more enjoying by adding two branded sticker sets, i.e., Stranger Things and Star Wars. A user will be able to use Stranger Things kids and the Demogorgon as well as the Star Wars characters and creatures including stormtroopers, R2-D2, BB-8, and porgs.

This is not the just which Google is offering to all its Pixel owners; the company also added some other creatures like a donut, a coffee mug and a weightlifting stalk of broccoli.

Somewhere it looks like Google is adding a kind of filters which one can use over the actual image, but it is a new of its kind that this can also be placed in videos and can look like the real. These Star Wars stickers are limited to all Pixel smartphone, and one necessary thing for that is you need to update your phone with the latest Android 8.1 Oreo. The company also said that the sticker option would start appearing in the camera app in upcoming days. And it is also expected that the company will add some more stickers to the set of collection provided now.
