AUSTIN, Texas, Nov. 21, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- "Friendsgiving" became mainstream with the famous Friends episode featuring Monica wearing a turkey on her head for Chandler, who used the "L" word for the first time in their relationship. Now you too can share the love with your friends and family with updates to the official free Friends app, which is available in English, Spanish, and Portuguese, and is compatible with the iPhone (iOS 7 and above), iPad (6th generation), iPad Pro (3rd generation), and Android phones.
Double A Labs, the app creator on behalf of Warner Bros. Television Group, released a new Friendsgiving category with 20 stickers and added 85 new stickers from AT&T, LEGO®, and Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf in the Find Content section. The first official Friends app delivers groundbreaking, first-of-its-kind AR experiences, such as the Point-N-Pivot game and the 3D stickers that give the fans the chance to share many of their favorite show moments.
Double A Labs CEO and Founder, Amber Allen shared, "The app appeals to the widest range of fans, from the first generation who watched the show in primetime to the second and third generation fans who video-binge today and expect immersive 3D and AR experiences. In keeping with fun and quirkiness of Friends, the app makes the elusive famed couch and turkey accessible for everyone."

New immersive experiences for the fans of Friends
The app includes the first-of-its-kind AR game, Point-N-Pivot, bringing fans virtually closer to their favorite moments and characters from the show. Instead of getting a pair of Joey's Thanksgiving pants, work off those Halloween and holiday calories by competing to see who can pivot for the win first. Use your iOS phone or iPad (running iOS13 with ARKit3 updates) to point, pivot and virtually touch AR stickers from iconic show moments like Chandler's bubble bath or Phoebe singing Smelly Cat. With every win, you can unlock a new theme from Central Perk or a ride in Phoebe's Checker Cab to stickers about your favorite Friends character.
This groundbreaking game is one of the first to enable people to touch virtual stickers using Apple's People Occlusion and Body Tracking technologies, going beyond having virtual objects move around people to game-changing interactivity.
