Google Playground gets ported to your OnePlus 6T
The camera is a big focus for the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL smartphones. Many have tested them and they are quite a joy. Besides that, one feature Google announced in 2017 was AR Stickers, and this year they have been renamed to Playground with four new packs now available on the Play Store. The Google Playground sticker pack includes: Marvel Studios Avengers, Pets, Signs, Sports, Stranger Things, The Last Jedi, Travel and Weather and they are a real fun to use.
Playground stickers are now entirely 3D and characters can finally interact with each other. Are you walking your dog? Cooking in the kitchen? Gardening in the backyard? Playground uses advanced computer vision and machine learning to recommend relevant Playmoji, stickers and captions to populate the scene.
Don’t say that you aren’t at least a bit curious! ARCore and AR Stickers were a long time supported on Android 8.1 running Pixel devices only, but things are so different now.
XDA Senior Member Arnova8G2 made the wonder happen. You can only imagine that we are talking about a ported app and that’s how things work. The app in cause runs on ARCore compatible Android devices running Android 9.0 Pie for now and a generous list of supported ARCore devices surprised us.
Yes, the list of supported smartphones is pretty extensive and more and more are being added every month. Your OnePlus 6T is already there, you see! You don’t need root access to for the procedure to work, but just to follow a few simple steps.
