Google has partnered with recording artist Childish Gambino for his Playmoji character. Childish Gambino's Playmoji can be augmented to photos and videos on Pixel smartphones.

"By using ARCore's motion tracking, light estimation, and ability to understand the real world, his Playmoji looks and feels lifelike, whether he's in front of you or in a selfie next to you. He even reacts to your facial expressions in real time thanks to machine learning," Google explained in a blog post.
