Google Lens rolls out to AR-enabled Android phones with Google Photos

In the Google Photos app, there is a Lens symbol that appears below every photo taken by the user, like the one seen on the Assistant.

Google has announced the first developer preview of Android P is now available bringing several new features include support for devices with a notched display. Google says the calculations will be handled on the device as part of an effort to maintain some privacy for users. Google Lens on these devices is integrated into Google Photos and Assistant.; on the other Android devices, Lens is now being made available in Google Photos. However, after the Pixel 2 XL got the Android 8.1 update, the proximity sensor started behaving differently on some devices. One of the features it has is Google Lens which enhances the capabilities of the smartphone's camera. After a few months of exclusivity, the app has now come to other Android devices through Google Photos app. Google has officially announced the availability of Google Lens via their official Twitter handle. That technology will let your device get your specific location based on information gathered from Wi-Fi hotspots.

Additionally, Users can also create a contact from a business card or identify a landmark.

The March 5, 2018 security patch is available for Nexus 5X, Nexus 6P, Pixel, Pixel XL, Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL.

If the menu card is in a foreign language, Google Lens can also translate it into English or your mother tongue (select global languages).

Google is adding its visual search tool, Lens, to every Android smartphone. However, we all know what you really want to learn about. To use it, you have to first take a picture of anything and pull it up in Google Photos.

The easiest way to go enable Google Pay (formerly Android Pay) about this is installing the Pay Enabler app directly on your Android Wear smartwatch using the Google Play Store.
