Google launches Google Lens for all the android users

GoogleTech today      Pixel smartphone users come up with battery related issues after its February update
        By William Hazzard

And if you've taken a photo of a dog, you can use Google Lens to find out the breed.

Previously available only for owners of the Pixel, Pixel XL, Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL, Google's AI camera feature, Google Lens is now available for more devices. Google tries to hit a yearly update cycle for Android, so we typically see just a couple of Developer Preview updates before the final update.

Google's funky new camera party trick, Google Lens, is now available on all Android phones with the Google Photos app installed.

Google has also improved visibility and function in notifications with Android P. The new Messaging Style notification will highlight who is messaging and how the user can reply. Google has officially announced that the Lens feature will be available for the Android users via Photos app. Photos is a preparatory app/platform from Google, which offers unlimited cloud storage for storing standard quality photos and videos. Lens basically works as a visual search engine, using your smartphone's camera to identify what you see in the real world. Or, if you photograph something with an address on it, Lens will identify the address and pull up Google Maps directions, saving you from having to type it in. This feature was tagged along with Google's Assistant and was exclusive to the Google's Pixel 2 flagship phones. Google Lens also has the ability to create a contact from a business card which is scanned.

Those phones got Oreo, but when P comes out in August or September they will be nearly three years old, so what Google is doing is at least consistent with its own policy.

If you have Pixel, you might have already tried your hand on the Lens feature.

The firm initially debuted it in Google Pixel 2, but it has since then started its roll out to all Android Phones with Google Photos. "A new window layout attribute, layoutInDisplayCutoutMode, lets you tell the system how and when lay out your content relative to the cutout area".

Another addition is better support for location discovery when you're in a building, which will use Wi-Fi Round-Trip-Time (RTT).
