Using artificial intelligence, Google Lens is a visual search feature that analyzes objects in a smartphone photo and provides search results or relevant information about it.
The feature can be used on various objects including landmarks, buildings, books, plants, animals, paintings in a museum, business cards, flyers, and billboards. For an example, when used on landmarks, Google Lens will provide details such as address, hours of operation, historical facts, and ratings.
Google Lens debuted last year on the Google Pixel. Earlier this month, Google made it available for non-Pixel Android devices. If you're interested in trying out Google Lens on your iPhone or iPad device, you can do so by downloading the Google Photos app here for free.
