With the launch of the similarly equipped Galaxy S9, many non-Google Pixel / Galaxy S9 mobile phone users are just around the corner. However, the good news is that, following Google’s announcement at MWC to develop Google Lens for more mobile phones, yesterday, some Android phones have already used this feature.
According to TheVerge, a foreign media player, some Android devices have been able to use the Google Lens feature in the latest Google Photo applications. It is understood that this part of the Android phone includes models from Samsung, Huawei, LG, Motorola, Sony and some Nokia’s Android flagship models.
As for Google devices that have been promised by Google, when can they use this feature, Google did not give an update schedule.
We have learned from foreign media that Google Lens embedded in Google Photo does not seem to be able to achieve “Live View Instant Recognition” unlike launching Google Lens with Google Assistant alone. It can only implement Google Lens’s content recognition capabilities in photos that users have taken (such as landmarks, books, or business cards).
However, this does not affect the use of Google Lens, it can still be the same as the original Google Lens to identify flowers and birds, access to restaurant information, scan business cards, translations and access Wi-Fi router SSID and password, and so on. All you need to do is click on Google Lens’s icon in the photos in Google Photo. The app will pop up a card for you with some introductory information and tips related to the content of the photo.
Unfortunately, because Google Photo’s update is a batch push, even if your device is in the support list, you may not be able to get the latest updates immediately.
