Google Lens is expanding to the native camera applications of more devices, including the Sony Xperia XZ2 and XZ2 Compact models, as detected by AndroidPolice . To enable integration, users will only need to update their Google application in the Play Store.
The updated Google Lens, which is the company's artificial intelligence platform for analyzing the real world, was first announced in 2017. Google announced at its annual I / O developer conference earlier this month that the Lens would be integrated directly into the smartphone camera in Google-made devices and top-notch Android phones, instead of just living inside Google Photos. The company said at that time that the platform would reach 10 different Android devices initially, but did not specify which in addition to the Pixel devices.
The new Google Lens combines the best of the company's algorithms for object recognition and natural language processing with Google Search, so your software can identify books and clothes and get relevant shopping results. It also has a smart text selection feature that allows you to copy text from real-life documents.
Previously, Google had only revealed the manufacturers of those 10 additional devices: LG, Motorola, Xiaomi, Sony Mobile, HMD / Nokia, Transsion, TCL, OnePlus, BQ and Asus. Google responded to a request for more details, saying: "More [devices] will be extended continuously."
