Google Lens has arrived on iOS via Google Photos just days after Google Lens began rolling out to regular Android users via the Google Photos app. iPhone and iPad users now have the ability to experience a Google Lens preview over the next week with the latest version of the Google Photos app (version 3.15).
To use Google Lens on your Apple device, all you need to do is pick a photo from the Google Photos app and then tap the Google Lens button from the bottom – next to the settings button. The tool leverages Google’s artificial intelligence (AI) technology and computer vision to analyse photos to display relevant information. It is capable of recognizing different objects and landmarks as well as transcribe the text from an image. The tool also gives you the ability to save contact details from a business card.
You can download the latest Google Photos version on your iOS device by visiting Apple App Store. The size of the app is 212.1MB and requires iOS 9.0 or later.
