The Mandalorian and baby Yoda are going home. Not in the ongoing second season of the Star Wars series, but on your phone. Google and Lucasfilm teamed up to launch the augmented reality app Mandalorian AR Experience, which allows you to reproduce the bounty of Mando (Pedro Pascal) from the first season, Baby Yoda (child ) We are being nerds, and then the two of them are going on a planetary jumping adventure in the far galaxy. You will be able to interact with the iconic duo, use “power” and discover hidden functions.
Unfortunately, Mandalorian AR Experience is only available in a very selected list of 5G phones, including Pixel 4a, LG Wing, Motorola Edge+, Moto Razr 5G, OnePlus 7 Pro 5G, OnePlus 8 series, Oppo Find X2, Samsung’s Galaxy Note20+, Galaxy S10 5G, Galaxy S20 series and Galaxy Z Flip 5G and Xiaomi Mi 10 Pro. The first experience-“Bounty Hunting”-and the weekly Mando Monday (the global marketing promotion will launch new products) will provide more experiences. Pixel owners will also get other content outside of the Mandalorian AR Experience.
If your device is not on the list, Google says it will support more 5G Android phones. It’s not clear why Google emphasized Mandalorian AR Experience’s demand for next-generation cellular technology, although this may be due to the demand for the application. Google said that the “Mandalorian AR experience” consists of “super detailed models and realistic animations”, which were made with the help of the Google platform ARCore for augmented reality experiences. ARCore’s depth API allows for occlusion and helps Mando and Baby Yoda “integrate with our world more naturally.”
The Mandalorian AR experience is now available on Google Play worldwide. Good hunting.
