Google Lens in a Assistant starts rolling out to all Pixel users


We knew this was usually a matter of time, yet Google currently reliable that Google Lens as partial of a Google Assistant is now rolling out to all Pixel phone owners. That’s something Google already announced during a hardware event, yet until now, a timing was unclear.

If we don’t see it when we call adult a Google Assistant, though, don’t worry. The association says that this underline is rolling out solemnly yet that it’s entrance to all Pixel phones in a U.S., U.K., Australia, Canada, India and Singapore over a “coming weeks.” Once a underline is live, we will see a Google Lens trademark in a bottom right dilemma of a Assistant screen.

Until now, a usually approach to use Lens was by Google Photos on a Pixel phone, yet that meant we had to initial take a picture, afterwards go to Google Photos, open that design and afterwards daub a Lens icon.

That was a lot of work, generally since for a many part, Lens possibly tells we things we already know (yep, that’s a Sydney Opera House, who could’ve guessed…) or doesn’t have most of an answer to start with. In a initial incarnation in Google Photos, it was all a bit unsatisfactory (though it did pretty good with artwork).

The guarantee of Lens in a Assistant goes a bit further, though. Google says that it can save information from business cards (remember those?), follow URLs, call phone numbers and commend addresses. It also can commend landmarks (though chances are that if Lens recognizes a landmark, afterwards so can you), and uncover we information about cinema and books by only looking during a spine or a poster. It also can indicate bar codes. We’ll see how good that all works once it hits the phones.
