Stranger Things is a spooky thriller that has managed to be an overnight rage amongst the viewers. To make the show a grand success, many companies are working on associating themselves with everything related to the Stranger Things show and Google seems to the first in line to do so.
About the Stranger Things Show
In case you are not living on any secluded island in the middle of nowhere, then you would definitely be aware of the “Stranger Things” show which is being aired on Netflix from the past few months. The TV series is a thriller show which is set in the 80s that brilliantly captures the lives and times in the US with near-perfection during that decade, by adding elements from the supernatural world. The Netflix show has managed to capture the imagination of the audience across the globe since the time of its release in July. To add to this madness, the show also makes subtle and cult references to a few over-the-top science fiction movies of that era like Poltergeist, E.T., and many others.

The search giant has announced that it is partnering with Netflix and is bringing the stickers related to the show to its Allo app as a Halloween gift to its users. Google had added a total of 24 stickers which include the cast of the Stranger Things TV show and a few very famous catchy phrases which will probably add an interesting flavor to the Allo conversations. So the next time a friend makes a mistake while in a conversation on Allo, you will not have to call them stupid yourself. Instead, you can just let “Eleven” call your friend a “mouth-breather”.
