Bringing Hungry Yeti to Life with the Galaxy Note10 and S Pen
Candy Crush Friends Saga is bringing one of its iconic characters, Hungry Yeti, to life in-game with a new augmented reality feature for Android users. Thanks to Samsung’s new partnership with Candy Crush Friends Saga, users of the Galaxy Note10 and Note10+ will be able to access exclusive bonus in-game AR interactions with their S Pen while playing.
Players need simply point their device at a flat surface to see Yeti come to life on-screen and in-room. By feeding this beloved character of the Candy Crush franchise daily, players can earn gifts which they can then use in-game when matching and switching candies. Users with a Galaxy Note10 or Note10+ are able to unlock even more fun in-game features with the S Pen’s Air actions; shaking the S Pen will activate the Yeti dance.
K-Pop superstars and Candy Crush superfans Lisa and Jisoo of BLACKPINK were invited to the King HQ in Stockholm to be the first to try out the new feature on the Galaxy Note10. “We are big fans of Candy Crush,” explained Lisa while visiting the King’s office. “While we are on tour, we spend a lot of time in transit and in hotel rooms, which is when we tend to play a lot.”
“Candy Crush Friends Saga has the cutest characters, and we’ve always loved Yeti,” continued Jisoo. “It was a lot of fun to see Yeti come to life and to dance with him. We really loved the moment when Yeti gave us a gift!”

We can’t wait for players to beat their high scores on Galaxy devices!”
The new Hungry Yeti AR feature is available for Android and Galaxy Candy Crush Friends Saga players on level 25 and above from August 30th. S Pen Air action interactions for the Hungry Yeti AR feature are available exclusively to Galaxy Note10 and Note10+ users.
