Easy steps to use the new Galaxy Note10+ AR Doodle feature

Creating your doodles begins with either method 1 or 2. Once you’ve pulled up the video screen and activated AR Doodle, you can then select either Face or Everywhere. If you want to doodle on a face, select Face to let you draw something inside or around the face area that your phone recognizes. Your Galaxy Note device is pretty efficient in detecting faces and will stick to it even if you move. Using the Face doodle option will allow you to draw or write something on the screen and will follow the face within the viewfinder. Make sure not to cover your face or disappear from the viewfinder to prevent the stickers from disappearing.

Everywhere mode will allow you to capture a video of your environment (so it’s not limited to  your face only) and write or draw on that video. What you have to do is to scan from left to write of the area you want to capture. Then, write or draw on the captured video just like what you can do when using the Face mode.
