Pixel users are already familiar with the Playground, a collection
of augmented reality (AR) characters and objects that can be inserted into fun
shots. The tech giant has now announced the Atlanta rapper as its latest AR character,
giving fans the chance to get their groove on with the popular artist.
By updating the Pixel 3/XL, Pixel 2/XL, or original Pixel/XL device via the Google Play Store, users can take a selfie with the Grammy nominee and his facial expressions will change to suit their own. Users can also drop Gambino into their own scene from the Google Pixel device and have him dance to “Redbone,” “Summertime Magic” and “This is America.”
A statement from Google reads, “We worked closely with Childish Gambino and his music video choreographer, Sherrie Silver, to make sure the Playmoji’s dance moves rival those of Childish Gambino himself. By using ARCore’s motion tracking, light estimation, and ability to understand the real world, his Playmoji looks and feels lifelike, whether he’s in front of you or in a selfie next to you. He even reacts to your facial expressions in real time thanks to machine learning—try smiling or frowning in selfie mode and see how he responds.”
Interested users can share videos of their dance off with Gambino using the hashtag #pixeldanceoff.
