Learn more about your environment with the help of Google's camera and AI
We have long known that Google has the answer to (almost) everything. If we have any questions, we can go to its search engine, and we can usually find the answer with relative ease if we know what to ask. Google Lens APK takes this search engine utility a little further, it is not only able to answer our "normal" searches using words, but it also makes searches using what we see. Download Google Lens Android and start searching through images.
The idea behind Google Lens APK is very simple: to search for everything that the camera captures and identifies. Therefore, we can find information about texts, plants, animals, objects, restaurants, stores, and almost anything in our environment that Lens can identify. Then, the search engine gives us relevant information about it.
Google Lens utilities
For a while, this feature was included as an option in Google Photos, but it transitioned to a standalone app for users to use and, in the process, feed the database for the company's artificial intelligence experiments. These are the main features it offers us:
- Recognize and interact with texts: Google Lens allows you to capture text with the camera to perform all kinds of actions, such as adding events to the calendar, looking up words in the dictionary or translating them, and even copying and pasting text.
- Information about your surroundings: it recognizes the most important monuments around, the works of art in museums, and their opening hours, and it also shows users information and historical data that may be of interest to them. Perfect for sightseeing!
- Item recognition for shopping: whether you are walking down the street and see the perfect jacket in a shop window, have a craving for some hard-to-find chocolates, or are curious to know how much your neighbor spent on his new car, Lens lets the user point the camera and buy the desired item or related items directly on the Internet.
- Recognition of plant varieties and animal breeds: curiosity should never be considered a defect. With Google Lens, you can feed your intellectual curiosity if you see an unknown plant or a dog in the park. Google Lens will identify the breed of the animal and the kind of plant.
Searches can be made using the device's camera or any image stored in your phone's gallery. In the bottom bar, depending on the type of object identified, we can find different search options, translations if it is a text, and even listen to songs or watch videos if the app interprets that there may be a relationship ... Download Google Lens Android right now, your environment will no longer have mysteries!
