Announced back at Google I/O, Google Lens is now available on all Google Pixel lineup of smartphones (including the recently launched Pixel smartphones) via Google Assistant.
Google, in its blog post said, “Looking at a landmark and not sure what it is? Interested in learning more about a movie as you stroll by the poster? With Google Lens and your Google Assistant, you now have a helpful sidekick to tell you more about what’s around you, right on your Pixel.”
For those who don’t know, Google Lens, using the device’s camera, coupled with machine learning and computer vision can provide users with the information about anything it captures. Additionally, Google Lens clubbed with Google Assistant can save information from the provided text, get in-depth information about places using landmarks, know more about a movie or a book simply with the help of a poster or trailer, and search for products using barcodes or scan barcodes.
For this, the users are simply required to tap the Google Lens icon present in the bottom right corner of Google Assistant.
Google Lens in Google Assistant will eventually roll out to the Pixel users in the U.S., U.K., Australia, Canada, India, and Singapore.
