You can also use Foodmoji and 3D text stickers, and since New Year's is a few weeks away, you get AR champagne and balloons.

The AR Stickers are integrated into the Pixel 2's camera app, a new mode has been added to the camera's slide-out settings menu.

AR Sticker users can also access sticker packs that add Foodmojis and characters from Netflix Inc.'s "Stranger Things" series.

Alongside the announcement of the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL, Google unveiled AR Stickers: augmented reality objects that you can drop into your photos that take advantage of the company's new ARCore platform. All you have to do is update your phone and press on the AR emoji you want to merge on the environment in which you are making your video or clicking your picture.

Of course, the big feature is the addition of the AR stickers to the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL. We haven't heard much about these stickers since the phones launched in October, but we're happy to report that they're finally here.
