Google finally announces to launch the Google Lens support for all the android devices. The feature triggers the visual search assistance in the Google photos that recognizes the things and business cards in the images. The feature was launched by the search giant last year, however, it was restricted only to the Pixel devices. Now, the company is bringing it for all the Android users.

The Lenses enables the object recognizing ability in the Android devices to provide the information about the objects in images. Whenever a user points a camera towards a monument or popular place, the lens shows the information about it using the Google search. In addition, it also recognizes the business cards for the users showing details like location on map. Consider you are on a vacation to Europe and if you point the Google Lense to any popular monument it will automatically show the information about it on the screen. This may include the basic information such as opening-closing timings and facts. The company started rolling out the feature for the Android users today.

In the latest Pixel devices, the Google Lens is also compatible with the Google Assistant to provide more functionalities. However, this feature is still under the copyright of Pixel phones and won't be coming to other Android devices.

Google Lens may be annoying sometime if you don't feel like knowing about anything and just want to snap a nice shot. Moreover, the business card recognition is not much of a help for the LinkedIn generation. Still, the feature will help you in getting information about the places just by taking a picture instead of Googling it. Google first announced about the Google lens for other Android devices at Mobile World Conference 2018.

While making the announcement in a tweet the company wrote, “Rolling out today, Android users can try Google Lens to do things like create a contact from a business card or get more info about a famous landmark. To start, make sure you have the latest version of the Google Photos app for Android”. The search giant also added that the Google Lens for iOS will be coming soon.
