Google Lens is now available for all Android users through Google Photos

Using your phone's camera, you can look up things like artwork, landmarks, and flowers by snapping a photo, then using the Lens button in Google Photos.

Google has finally found a fix for the proximity sensor issues which surfaced on the Pixel 2 XL following the Android 8.1 update in October, 2017. The Android roll-out is happening right now, so if you don't see the update you might need to be patient. 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. Looking ahead, today we're sharing the first developer preview of Android P, the newest version of Android.

Google has also improved visibility and function in notifications with Android P. The new Messaging Style notification will highlight who is messaging and how the user can reply.

So, this is how you can use Google Lens to identify objects on your Android Phone.

Amazon Is Looking to Offer Checking Accounts, Reports Says
While U.S. policy makers have for years been skeptical of letting big companies move into banking services, that may be changing. The retailer would target "young consumers" and people without access to traditional checking accounts, the report says.

BTW, Android Pay is now Google Pay, and you can use this trick to get Google Pay to work on your Android Wear smartwatch. Google Lens will be able to tell you. You should see an overlay on your photos indicating that it's available for the Lens treatment. Features like Google Assistant and Google Lens are the next generation of innovations in the present century.

AI-powered Google Lens is undoubtedly a highly-advanced camera feature that can turn a somber photo session into a lively infotainment interaction. For instance, in our Google Pixel 2 XL, when asked to scan a photo of a Galaxy S9, it only shows the result as smartphone. "To start, make sure you have the latest version of the "Google Photos" app for Android", the company wrote on Twitter late on Tuesday.

Google Lens is an add-on for photos which allows users to scan images for more information. If you've already used it, how did it work for you?
