What is Google Lens? It’s a mobile app developed by Google that uses visual analysis to bring up relevant information. Google Lens uses the phone’s camera to detect an object. It goes further to understand the object it has detected.
Despite primarily being an exclusive feature of Google Pixel, Google Lens was the company’s biggest announcement. The app is like Bixby Vision of Samsung.
It enables you to point at an object and answers based on what you have looked at. The app also gives suggestions depending on the purpose (e.g. nearby florists supposing you are seeking a flower).
You can also look at your phone’s camera at a text, highlight it in the app and use it on your phone, e.g. a WI-FI password and copy-paste it on the login screen.
The software also recognizes cafes, restaurants and clubs, presenting the user with pop-up windows showing address details, opening times and reviews.
Google Lens offers action based on the object it has seen. It’s the app’s ability to recognize objects that makes it impressive.
