Google Lens is an AI-based technology that uses deep machine learning not only to detect an object in an image, but also to understand it and offer actions like scanning, translating, shopping, etc. Lens was one of Google’s biggest announcements of 2017, and a Pixel-exclusive feature when this phone launched. But now Google Lens has arrived on the majority of Android devices – if you don’t wash it, the app is available for download from the Play Store.
Speaking of phones, Google also announced that Lens will receive an update on mobile devices. From next year, you will be able to ask a question after taking a photo. Let’s say you need a part to fix your car. Then you can get results even if you don’t know what you need.
