It’s official: Google put out in use the extraordinary Google Lens feature for Android users and devices and didn’t just resume using Pixel lineup. Information leaks inform customers that a future expected add-on will grant the possibility of using Google Lens through Google Assistant incorporation.
Possibilities for now
Android is currently supporting Google Lens-powered by Google Photos and it’s said that a version for iOS is slowly but surely making its way up front. What’s to focus on at the moment is Google’s AI-powered technology used for imaging that spread in no time to all Google Photo users on Android.
Reactions coming back are predominantly positive in regards to utility, the tech doing precisely the things it was created for. The app’s goal is to enhance users with image recognition, therefore, lend out pertinent descriptions and information about almost any subject behind the camera. Having the reports as a start point, the app is good at what it does and is subject to future expansion with even more valuable attributes.
Twitter Google Photos account published a post announcing the launch of Google Lens for Android. It suggests the utility of the app in means of adding a contact directly from a business card or, if you are on holiday, it can bring information about the scenery you are watching in a matter of seconds. The post once again mentions iOS in the plans of future development.
Google Lens is designed to give input about what is put in a picture. It is powered by the AI department of the company and it’s able to detail relevant data in many areas such as nature, art-work, written language, books and even architecture designs.
When we focus just on text recognition, Google Lens can process through printed media and can send an e-mail, make a call, scan product barcodes and go to websites of our choice. We do need to keep in mind that it has a database of its own that it’s not inexhaustible and that, for the time being, it is only available in a company with Google Photos.
