Google rolls out visual search application 'Lens' for iOS devices

Google Lens is slowly making its way to many Android devices, but iOS users haven't been forgotten. After a short period of processing, Google's AI will identify things like landmarks, buildings, and even paintings while offering additional relevant information, hopefully expanding your knowledge about the world around you.

According to a tweet from the Google Photos' Twitter account, Google Lens in Google Photos on iOS began rolling out on Thursday to those who have the latest version (3.15) of the app installed.

Furthermore, Google Lens can be used to copy and take action on the visible text, or to visit a website, get directions, add an event to the calendar, call a number, copy and paste a recipe, and more.

Announced back at Google IO 2017, and first released on the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL, Lens has until now been limited to Android devices. Google Lens activity is saved in that timeline for future recall. Point it at a business card, meanwhile, and it will attempt to extract the pertinent contact details and then offer to create a new contact entry with them on your phone.

Google Lens is Google's AI image recognition technology at its best.

You'll need Google Photos 3.15 or later to have Lens work on your iPhone and iPad.
