Google's ARCore has expanded its support for the Galaxy S9 and S9 +, meaning you get access to all the cool new apps that the world around them can perceive. But one of ARCore's coolest apps yet is still Pixel Exclusive: AR stickers integrated directly into the Google Camera app. Fortunately, XFA user lofass33 has an ingenious solution to use these stickers on your S9.
Due to its recent inclusion in the list of supported devices from ARCore, the S9 series has a lot to offer before augmented reality goodies such as stickers and lenses for their home cameras are really widely used. In order not to be deterred, lofass33 skipped the entire camera of the S9 and instead converted Google Camera together with AR stickers from the Google Pixel in order to circumvent the current limitations of the S9.
