Exclusive AR Games

Candy Crush Friends Saga Has an AR Mode Only for Samsung Galaxy Devices

— August 28, 2019 — Tech
Only those with access to a Samsung Galaxy device will be able to experience a new augmented reality feature in the Candy Crush Friends Saga called Hungry Yeti. To kick off the launch of the all-new Samsung Galaxy Note10 and Note10+, the owners of these devices are being given exclusive access to a mode that allows players to feed Yeti cookies and receive a daily gift that will help them with switching and matching candies in the main game. To activate the AR experience, players with a compatible device can open a virtual portal and see the game's Yeti character come to life before their eyes—and even see him dance by shaking the S Pen.

For the unveiling of this special mobile device feature, K-pop stars Lisa and Jisoo of BLACKPINK were invited to experience Hungry Yeti in augmented reality for themselves.
