Google has extended ARCore support to many Android flagships like the Galaxy S10, so if you have a compatible device, you get access to all those cool new apps that can increase the world around you. One of ARCore's most sought after features, AR Stickers, is typically exclusive to Google's Pixel series, but by uploading the Google Camera app, you can try it on any ARCore device.
Now known officially as Google Playground, Google's AR stickers can be made to work on most ARCore devices with a little bit of delusion. Developer Arnova8G2 has done all the hard work in advance (which is covered by XDA), so the process is as simple as installing any apps.
