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.
Overview and benefits of Google Lens
Despite primarily being an exclusive feature of Google Pixel, Google Lens was the company’s biggest announcement in 2017. The app is similar to Bixby Vision of Samsung.
It enables you to point at an object and gives the answer based on what you have pointed. The app also gives suggestions depending on the object (e.g nearby florists supposing you are pointing a flower).
You can also point 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 login screen.
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.
