Google Lens Debuts on Samsung Devices
Google has finally started rolling out its AI-based Google Lens feature to Samsung flagships.

(CCM) — Google's artificial intelligence feature, dubbed Google Lens, is now rolling out to Samsung's Galaxy S8, S8+, S9, S9+, and Note 8 smartphones. The Google Lens first debuted on the Pixel smartphone, and it comes in two versions.

The first version of Google Lens on Google Photos works on Android devices via the Google Photos app and allows users to get information on saved photos in their phone galleries. Thanks to its advanced AI technology, Google Lens can identify famous landmarks, portraits, and more just by scanning an image. It also offers users complete information about the identified artifacts and monuments, without the need to perform a manual search.

The second and superior version of Google Lens relies on the phone's camera to search and is found under the Assistant app. It lets users point their phone cameras at famous monuments, objects, and food items. It then gives them information about artifacts in real time. Google Lens comes with a viewfinder that quickly scans what the user points the camera at and immediately fetches relevant info about it.

During the launch announcement of Google Lens, the company promised that it will roll the feature out to Android devices from manufacturers such as LG, Motorola, Sony, Huawei, and Nokia (HMD). Google also claimed that it will also be made available on Apple's iPhone. For now, Samsung users can access it by opening Google Assistant and tapping the Google Lens logo in the bottom-right corner.
