The new feature was announced via the official Google Photos Twitter account. The feature is rolling out to iOS users who have the latest version (version 3.15) of the app installed on their devices. If you’re not seeing it yet, be patient, it’s rolling out region-by-region.
Google Lens is a visual search tool that can recognize objects in both live and saved images. Lens can distinguish flower types, parse and save information from business cards, offer restaurant reviews, create calendar appointments, and much more.
The feature was initially only available on Google Pixel devices, then last week made its way to other Android devices in the Google Photos app.
Google Photos is free, and is available for iOS devices in the App Store. [GET IT HERE]
