Google Spotlight Stories exit Motorola exclusivity, launch new Justin Lin short
For a minute there we thought that the Spotlight Stories that were exclusive to recent Motorola smartphones, remained that way because it was a Motorola thing. As it turns out, these augmented reality games were created by Motorola’s ATAP division, which was kept by Google after the Lenovo acquired Moto. You can learn more about Michael Fisher’s love for these services in his recent After The Buzz of the Moto X 2014, and if you like what you see, here’s how to get it.
Google has just launched Spotlight Stories as a separate app that’s accessible to all Android devices. All three original stories are available to everyone when you download the app, but that’s not all. Google is also launching a new story, which is more like a live action experience called Help. Believe it or not, Help was directed by Justin Lin, someone who’s already famous for films from the Fast and the Furious franchise, and the new Star Trek movies as well. Just like with every short, all you do is move your phone around to play, and even though it weighs a crazy 1GB in precious storage, the film only lasts 5 minutes.
