Google Lens comes to all Android Phones with Google Photos

Google Lens comes to all Android Phones with Google Photos

As promised at Google I/O 2017, the Artificial Intelligence (AI)-based Google Lens camera feature, which was limited only to the flagship Pixel series phones, is finally coming to mid-range and low-end Android phones.

In order to make sure that you can use Google Lens, you need to have the latest version of Google Photos app installed on your device.

Google has a list of the new features that can be found in Android P, and as this is a major upgrade to the software, there are plenty to sift through. With Lens, you'll be able to point your phone's camera at a flower and have it automatically identify the flower for you. And a multi-camera API will allow stream access from "two or more physical cameras on devices running Android P", the post noted. Then, you will want to download the necessary files before flashing them on your current Pixel device. Lens is an AI-powered technology that uses your smartphone camera and deep machine learning (Google's specialty) not only to detect an object but also understand what it sees. We expect Google to give Android P a more formal unveiling at Google I/O 2018.

Google has officially launched Android P.

With this in mind, it's probably safe to assume that the original Pixel and Pixel XL phones only have a year of life left, and probably won't see Android Q.

Google Lens is kind of your own personal photographer assistant which lets you know about the places by looking at the photos. We've added display cutout into the platform, along with APIs that you can use to manage how your content is displayed. The rich notifications improve upon Android's current notifications by adding more context and potentially suggested replies.

Additionally, Autofill improvements will offer better compatibility with password managers, and an implementation of the Open Mobile API will better support secure mobile payments.

Instead, users will just have to load the specific images from Google Photos. You can find out the official tweet which is embedded here.
