Google Lens Rolling Out to All Android Users in Google Photos
Google today said all Android users can try Google Lens via the latest version of Google Photos for Android. Google Lens is an image-recognition function that relies on mobile cameras to perform searches. Using Google Lens, Android owners can aim their camera at just about anything and Google will instantly perform a search and suggest results. For example, users can snap a shot of an old car on the street and immediately gain information about that car and discover where it might be available for sale. Google Lens can recognize objects such as flowers, vehicles, gadgets, business cards, and more. The tool works within the Google Photos mobile app. Google Photos is free to download from the Google Play Store. Google Lens has been available to Google's own Pixel and Nexus devices since last year.
