Now that the second season of The Mandalorian has wrapped, fans of the show might be missing their weekly dose of Baby Yoda. But thanks to Lucasfilm’s new partnership with Google, you can take the little guy wherever you go. Baby Yoda or Grogu, as revealed in Chapter 14, is the latest creature to join Google’s 3D model of augmented reality search results. All you need to access this feature is a smartphone that supports augmented reality and the Google app.
Getting The Child to appear in your space is super easy too. Just follow these simple steps…
- Open the Google app (Android & iOS) and search for The Child, Grogu, The Mandalorian, or Baby Yoda.
- Tap “view in 3D” on the search results page to see the 3D model.
- Then, tap “view in your space” and you’ll be able to see The Child wherever your camera takes you.
Unfortunately, there aren’t too many interactions available for Baby Yoda in the augmented reality app, besides zooming in and out. But it’s still super cool and fans are encouraged to share photos of The Child in their homes on social media using related hashtags.

This isn’t the first time Google has partnered with Lucasfilm. The companies previously worked on The Mandalorian AR Experience app, which was built for use on 5G Pixel phones and other select 5G Android handsets.
The app allowed users to operate as a bounty hunter and follow the trail of Mando and The Child from the hit Disney+ show. It also featured character interactions, which helped people to learn more about the first season of the show.
Created by Jon Favreau, The Mandalorian stars Pedro Pascal, Gina Carano, Carl Weathers and Giancarlo Esposito. Season one and two are currently available to stream in their entirety on Disney+. Season three, which is currently in the works, is set to premiere in December 2021.
