Spook fest, Halloween, is being celebrated all over the world. Celebrating the Halloween spirit, tech giant Google has added spooky 3D characters in AR (Augmented Reality) to Google Search. In other words, if a user searches for words like Halloween, Jack-o-lantern, human skeleton, cat, dog, or German Shepherd in the Google app or in their mobile browser, they will find these de-fright-ful characters on Google. Users can click pictures of/with these characters in the real world by tapping on ‘View in 3D’ in Google Search.
These 3D stickers were announced by Google via a post on microblogging site Twitter. “Halloween is almost here! Jack-o-lantern Get into the spirit with new de-fright-ful #Google3D characters in AR on Search. Spook up your space with an #AR creature,” reads the post.
The tweet also has a 30-second video showcasing Halloween characters like Jack-o-lantern, human skeleton, black cat, dog and more.
These stickers are available on both Android and iOS devices.
Google has also added other spook-tacular features across products to help celebrate Halloween this year. One such feature is 2016 Magic Cat Academy Doodle. Available on the Google homepage for the next 48 hours, clicking on the Doodle will allow users to join Momo the cat in an underwater adventure filled.
Users can also ask Google Assistant to play Halloween song. One can say, “Hey Google, sing the Halloween song” to hear about Google Assistant helping a werewolf, ghost and vampire get their haunting skills ready for Halloween. The song is available in Arabic, French, Indonesian, Japanese, Spanish, English across the globe and Portuguese in Brazil. They can also ask the Google Assistant to play Halloween sounds or change their doorbell ringtone to spooky suns theme on Nest Hello.
