Working closely with our long term collaborators Google, we brought to life the new Playmoji inspired by recording artist Childish Gambino.

Exclusive to Pixel, our Gambino Playmoji not only reacts in real time to other characters, but with the phone’s camera and machine learning, it responds to the facial expressions of photo subjects. Whether happy, surprised or grumpy, Gambino AR feels it with you.

What’s more, using motion-capture on the man himself, we were able to reproduce his iconic moves, which map three of his songs: ‘Summertime Magic’ ‘This is America’ and ‘Redbone’.

Anyone with a Pixel phone can now interact with this fun character. Get cracking!
