Hi Mi Fans!
Here we are introducing a new feature Google Lens Preview which is recently added along with Google Photos & Google Assistant. We all use Google Photos for the free unlimited backup, And soon Google is adding Google Lens to this app. Google Lens is based on AI (Artificial Intelligence). Google Lens is yet another interesting advancement in Google’s vision to create an entirely AI driven mobile device.

What is Google Lens?
Google Lens is a tool that effectively brings search into the real world. The idea is simple: you point your phone at something around you that you want more information on and Lens will provide that information.

Google Lens App is built right into the Google Photos. What Google Lens does is that it reads the photos and recognizes the objects in them and then delivers useful information regarding them. It could really come in handy when you want to find the name or brand of a particular item you could just point your phone at it and get the necessary info. Below is a list of objects/tasks that Google Lens would be able to identify/perform:

  • Artwork
  • Barcodes
  • Books
  • Buildings
  • Landmarks
  • Media covers
  • Movies
  • Music albums
  • Paintings
  • Places
  • Points of Interest
  • Statues
  • Video games
  • Add contacts from a business card
  • Language translation
  • Look up product information
  • Open web addresses in your browser
  • Plant and animal identification
  • Save dates to your calendar from a poster

Google AI
AI is the natural evolution of search. Traditionally, when you searched for something on Google, it would bring up responses by looking for exact matches in the content. If you type ‘Xiaomi’ then that becomes a ‘keyword’ and Google would provide content with repetitious use of that word. You’ll even see it highlighted in the text.
But this isn’t really ideal. The ideal scenario would be for Google to actually understand what you’re saying and then provide results on that basis. That way, it could offer relevant additional information, it could suggest other useful things and become an even more indispensable part of your life.

Here are the key ways your Assistant and Google Lens can help you today:
Text: Save information from business cards, follow URLs, call phone numbers and navigate to addresses.
Landmarks: Explore a new city like a pro with your Assistant to help you recognize landmarks and learn about their history.
Art, books and movies: Learn more about a movie, from the trailer to reviews, right from the poster. Look up a book to see the rating and a short synopsis. Become a museum guru by quickly looking up an artist’s info and more. You can even add events, like the movie release date or gallery opening, to your calendar right from Google Lens.
Barcodes: Quickly look up products by barcode, or scan QR codes, all with your Assistant.
