Google Lens is now available to everyone on Android through Google Photos

Vlad, 06 March 2018

Last month Google unveiled that its Lens feature would become available to all Android and iOS users through the Google Photos app, following an exclusivity period of a few months for Pixels. Today that integration is finally rolling out, with an update to Photos in the Play Store.

With Lens, you can create a contact from a photo of a business card or get more information about a famous landmark that you've captured. That's because Lens understands what you're looking at, and will try to make the most of that. It will soon have improved support for recognizing common animals and plants, so it will be able to tell different dog breeds apart, for example.

As you can see from the embedded tweet above, Google says Lens is still in the "coming soon" phase in Photos on iOS.
