Google’s augmented reality search results will now let you drop an AR version of Grogu (formerly, Baby Yoda) while quick typing. It will eliminate the need for a spaceship to get the little guy into your bedroom or home office.
The Knowledge Panel will still display a Wikipedia summary of the character if you search for ‘Grogu’, ‘The Child’, ‘The Mandalorian’, or ‘Baby Yoda’ within the app. But now you’ll be able to see an option to ‘View in 3D’ to look up a model or even better, you can tap on ‘View in your space’ to have the character sitting in front of you. The feature just lets you zoom in and out but that’s cool enough for the cute alien to start with.
Recently, the tech giant added 50 new animals to its AR search results, including hippos, zebras, and giraffes. But ever since they had added the dinosaurs, Grogu has been the most outlandish introduction.
This isn’t the first time that Star Wars has featured within the company’s products. The first ones were the exclusive AR stickers on the Pixel 2 and then The Mandalorian AR Experience app using Google’s ARCore in partnership with Disney.
Now, all you gotta wait for is voice recognition so AR Grogu can pop up every time you call out his name.
