Google releases March 2018 security patch update for Pixel and Nexus devices

07 March 2018

The feature was initially available only to Google's own smartphone series Pixel.

Google Lens, which allows a person to use their camera to quickly identify an object, animal, and more, has been rolling out to devices within the Pixel lineup for a bit of time now.

While Android users are seeing the update today, those using Photos on iOS can also expect Lens as well. "To start, make sure you have the latest version of the Google Photos app for Android", the Google Photos team said on Twitter. For example, if you come across a movie poster and point the camera towards it, Lens will identify the movie and take you straight to its Play Movies catalogue where you can purchase the movie or read up more about it.

Google then added users need to have the latest version of the Google Photos app in Android to access Google Lens.

Google Lens can now identify buildings/landmarks, company logos, cat/dog breeds, text, paintings, movies, etc. Google Lens literally turns your Android phone into a visual search engine. The tool leverages Google's artificial intelligence (AI) efforts and computer vision to analyse photos to display relevant information.

Google Lens is not only limited to historical buildings or business utilities.

Google Lens' wider support is rolling out on a gradual basis, and everyone should have the update in the next few days, Google tweeted.
