How to Get Google Playground AR Stickers for Non-Pixel Devices
I don’t know about you, but I’m pretty excited to play around with Playground. It is a lot of fun for all of us. Google Playground is not simply a rebranding, but much more than that. Those saying that Playground is a rebrand of AR Stickers on the surface, forget about the major key differences. I am talking about new characters such as heroes from Marvel’s Avengers or the fact that characters can easily interact with each other.
At the same time, suggestions for stickers will appear based on what’s showing on the screen, and Playground also works in selfie mode, not just with the rear-facing camera. ARCore is a cool technical concept and even if it doesn’t have a lot of uses in the real world yet, it’s great that you can now enjoy Google Playground AR Stickers on even more handsets.
Supported ARCore devices
Thanks to the work of XDA Senior Member Arnova8G2, you can now get Google Playground on non-Pixel devices too. l am talking about ARCore supported devices that are running Android 9 Pie, without root required.
The list of all compatible ARCore devices includes all sorts of devices, such as Razer 2 or OnePlus 6T, so take a closer look: Supported Devices.
