Google Lens coming to all phones running Google Photos

Google Lens coming to all phones running Google Photos

Google Lens, which uses AI smarts to recognise features within photographs, was previously exclusive to Google's own Pixel devices. It resolves a total of 37 issues as well as includes improvements specifically for the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL models. It also said that, starting in November 2018, all apps sent through to the Google Play Store will need to target Android Oreo or newer, and, by next year, they will need to support 64-bit hardware.

Each year, Google uses its flagship phone to deliver new and interesting features to Android. Alongside its availability in the form of an over-the-air (OTA) rollout, Google has released factory images and OTA zip files of the latest Android update.

Google has patched a serious Android bug that could allow remote attackers to execute malicious code on devices running the software. Android P also adds support for multi-camera API which will allow users to access streams simultaneously from two or more physical cameras on the device.

Also, Lens works well for the more well-known objects but is prone to falter with things that border rarity.

Another feature coming with Android P is Wi-Fi Round-Trip-Time (RTT) support. Lens should also be available on Google Assistant as it is on Pixel phones, but that implementation has not rolled out to Android users as of now. Google just updated the Android security bulletin, then released a secondary Pixel security bulletin with more information. In other words, Google is rolling out Lens in phases, and it could be some time before it starts appearing on all Android devices eventually.

Google Lens works thanks to an AI recognition system when a user takes a photograph of a book, a landmark, or most points of interest, Google will run it through their database and provide a card with relevant information about the subject of the photograph. So, if you take a picture of a calling card, for example, Lens can produce a new call with the details published there. Let's not forget though that Google has done a good job of moving major features of its OS into its apps and services, and due to Android's open nature, the community often helps fill the gaps. However, you can install it now if you have the right devices for it.
