The feature is not yet available on iOS, and some of the Android devices at the MobileSyrup offices have yet to receive the Lens update.
Lens was very much experimental and temperamental, but Google continues to make fixes and add more features.
Google Lens allows users to scan items of all types to try and gain additional information on whatever is captured in the phone's camera. Now, as far as the latest version of Android is concerned, we have known that the Google Pixel 2 lineup was the first to get released with the latest version of Android. In order to use the Google Lens in an Android smartphone, all you need to do is to choose a picture from the Google Photos app. The expansion of Google Lens was revealed by the search giant last month.
Google Lens Rolls Out to All Android Phones
Lens is created to make sense of the visual world, Google Lens Senior Director of Product Aparna Chennapragada told The Verge. On non-Pixel devices, Google Lens is missing Google Assistant support. The options displayed will depend on the information Google gleans from your photo. Lens in Google Photos app will also roll out for iOS users soon, says the company, but there is no clear timeline for the same.
We still can't forget company CEO Sundar Pichai's Google Lens demo at the Google I/O 2017 event.
You can download the Google Photos app from Google Play to start using Google Lens on your Android device.
