Last month Google announced that its Lens feature would be available to all Android and iOS users through the Google Photos app, after making available for only Pixels for a few months. The integration has finally started rolling out, with an update to Photos in the Play Store.
Whatâ€™s Even The Use Of The Lens?
With Google Lens, you can create a contact from a photo of a business card or get more information about a famous landmark that you’ve captured. That’s because Lens understands what the user is looking at, and will try to make the most of that.
The company will also improve its support for recognizing common animals and plants, so it will be able to tell different dog breeds apart, for example.
As you can see from the embedded tweet above, Google says Lens is still in the “coming soon” phase in Photos on iOS.
