First, there’s an AR Camera that brings characters and furniture from the game into your personal space using ARKit on iOS and ARCore on Android. Once placed in your environment, you can take pictures of the scene and share them with others.

Next, the AR Cabin feature applies the tried-and-true virtual portal effect. If you have progressed far enough into the game to have designed a cabin and filled it with furniture and other possessions, then, with AR Cabin, you can place a digital door in your physical environment and then enter your virtual home away from home and explore it. In addition, you can bring up to eight game characters into the virtual space with you.

Both features can be found in the floating action button at the bottom right of the game’s home screen.
