We used to send each other simple holiday greetings by creating digital cards or even just through a simple “Happy Holidays” with matching emojis through messaging apps or social media. But now it’s like we expect people to up their game with all these emoticons and stickers and GIFs and whatever else we now have on our smartphones. If you have an LG V40 ThinQ smartphone then you can use these 10 holiday-themed augmented reality stickers to make your holiday pictures and greetings cooler.
You will need to download the AR stickers first from the LG SmartWorld app before you can actually use it. Once you’ve done that, you can take the wacky or funny pictures of yourself and others and then choose from among the 10 stickers to customize your photo. You can share them in private through an individual or group chat in any of your messaging apps or post it public in any of your social networks like Facebook and Instagram.
One of the selling points of the LG V40 ThinQ is that it has five cameras with all sorts of features that should make taking photos and videos even more interesting. You have Cine Shot, Backdrop, 3D Light Effect, Makeup Pro, and My Avatar among others. You can use any of them in order to make the best holiday greeting together with any of the themed AR stickers.
Other brands have been getting into the AR sticker craze for some time now, like Google and Facebook. Samsung has even teamed up with Disney to bring exclusive AR emojis, but only those with a Galaxy S9, S9+, and Note 9 will be able to see and use them. Same with this one for LG, only those that have the V40 ThinQ can be able to use the AR stickers.
If more phones will be able to use this, then we may be seeing the next trend for messaging and social media. But for now, only those that have the necessary equipment can enjoy the AR stickers.
