[Update: Selfie Mode for Pixel 3a] Google Playground has joined the dark mode club [APK Download]

Google is introducing a system-wide dark mode with Android Q and is hard at work to get as many apps as possible in line for the stable launch.

Google Playground's stickers and Playmojis are pretty fun, and the timely Childish Gambino drop likely brought more attention to the Pixel's AR features. It makes sense, then, that Valentine's Day arrives with another new pack, predictably all pink and heart-shaped.

Childish Gambino AR Playmoji dances onto your Pixel five months after Google reveal

Some of you may remember when Google showed off an AR Childish Gambino for the newly rebranded Playground app during Made by Google 2018. If you do, congrats! For some reason, Google seems to have edited out that section of the announcement (and perhaps others).

However, these were all supposed to be exclusive for the Pixel 3.

Which Pixel 3 features are coming to older Pixel phones (and which will remain exclusive)

Google's Pixel 3 and 3 XL didn't pack a whole lot of hardware surprises, considering the unceasing deluge of leaks over recent months, but the software was another story. There were plenty of new camera features shown off at the Made by Google 2018 event, with oodles of machine learning magic to go around. Unfortunately for owners of older Pixel phones, not all of these new features will be coming to older handsets. For your convenience, we put together a list of all the major software changes that will (and won't) be coming to previous models.
