Google Lens, the company’s visible hunt engine that can commend what’s in your images and indicate business cards, among other things, is now rolling out to all Google Photos users on Android. This marks Google’s first major enlargement for Lens, which was formerly only accessible to those who had entrance to the latest Pixel phones. On those phones, Lens also is accessible by the Google Assistant, but that underline isn’t rolling out to all Android users yet.
Google promises that Lens in Google Photos will hurl out to iOS users “soon,” but it’s misleading when accurately this will happen.
Lens can be both frustrating and utterly useful — yet it never feels indispensable. When it works, it works really well. And while you substantially don’t need Lens to tell you that you are station in front of the Eiffel Tower (unless you are really jet lagged), the fact that it can show you some-more information about sights, including opening hours, is actually utterly useful (though you could just as good do a discerning hunt in Google Maps, too).
The ability to indicate a business label is flattering useful, though, unless, of course, you’ve finished divided with business cards a prolonged time ago and just use LinkedIn anyway.
Personally, we haven’t found much use for Lens so far. It’s a good parlor trick, but it’s easy to forget it exists. Over time, though, it may just get good adequate that it’s easier to take a picture of a landmark or grill to get some-more information than acid for it with a keyword.
