After bringing Grogu, the Child or the Baby Yoda, to life during the last holiday season, Google brings yet another exciting augmented reality (AR) feature to its search engine platform. You can access the new Mandalorian AR experience on any iOS or Android device with a supported operating system.
The tech giant has taken this a step further with the launch of a new app called ‘Star Wars: The Mandalorian AR Experience’. The app, which is exclusively available on the Google Play store, let the users bring the popular characters of Din Djarin and Grogu into their homes in an exciting new way.
The app’s description on the Google Play Store states, “The Mandalorian’s adventures arrive in your reality with this all-new immersive AR app. Become a bounty hunter and bring the world of ‘The Mandalorian’ to life in your own space. Interact with characters and discover hidden features as you bring scenes from Season 1 to life. Retrace the Mandalorian‘s steps, find the Child, and harness the Force, all featuring life-sized versions of your favorite characters. Explore. Capture. Share.”
The users just need to click the ‘Begin’ button upon launching the app which will present the option to choose amongst all the AR scenes that are available. Since the app’s introduction in November, Google has been constantly adding new 3D scenes and experiences such as the ‘Bounty Tracking’ that features Djarin.
Discussing the platform’s compatibility, Google stated, “Google, Disney, and Lucasfilm teamed up to bring the world of The Mandalorian to life in AR. The Mandalorian AR Experience is available only on Google Play for 5G Google Pixels and other select 5G Android phones, with new experiences dropping weekly starting November 23.”
There has been no information released regarding a compatible version of the app for iPhone, iPad, and even non-Google phones in the near future.
The app also presents the potential to be supported on smart glasses like the Star Wars: Tales From the Galaxy’s Edge virtual reality video game. However, again there is no concrete information available regarding the launch of the app on these platforms.
It is speculated that other Mandalorian characters such as Cara Dune (Gina Carano), Bo-Katan Kryze (Katee Sackhoff), Koska Reeves (Mercedes Varando/Sasha Banks), Ahsoka Tano (Rosario Dawson), Boba Fett (Temuera Morrison), or Fennec Shand (Ming-Na Wen) will also make their way onto the platform with the progress of The Mandalorian saga.
