Google has finally rolled out its Google Lens app for iOS users a week after rolling it out to Android users.
The new Google Lens feature works within the Google Photos iOS app and can identify objects, landmarks, buildings and informs users about the address, open hours, and phone number. In addition, the app will be able to identify things such as paintings in museums, plants, animals, and books.
Another cool feature about this app is it can add an event to the user’s calendar if the user takes a photo of a flyer or event billboard. Ever cooler, if a user take a picture of a business card it will be stored in the user’s contacts.
Starting today and rolling out over the next week, those of you on iOS can try the preview of Google Lens to quickly take action from a photo or discover more about the world around you. Make sure you have the latest version (3.15) of the app.https://t.co/Ni6MwEh1bu pic.twitter.com/UyIkwAP3i9
