LENS ADDED TO GOOGLE ASSISTANT

Lens was announced at Google I/O 2017, and began rolling out to Photos a few weeks ago. Lens is a machine-learning powered successor to Google Goggles. It can identify objects and landmarks in photos. Google said it would eventually arrive in Assistant, and now it looks like the time has come.

Google Lens aims to pull information from your phone's camera feed and show you results based on that information. The Lens icon first replaced the info icon in pictures inside the gallery. And now finally the Google Assistant gets the Lens.

HOW TO USE LENS - 

The new Lens button appears at the bottom right corner of the Google Assistant and tapping on it opens the camera. From there, we can tap on the object we want to search and the Assistant will try to figure out what it is. It is similar to the Lens in Google Photos, except we can take the pictures instantly and search it.


PHONES GETTING THE LENS - 

Initially this feature was Pixel exclusive but now it seems to be rolling out to a wider range of phones. Several devices like the OnePlus, Motorola, Samsung, Nokia have already received it.

HOW TO GET LENS ON ASSISTANT - 

1. Check your Google Assistant at the lower right position to see if you can spot the Lens, since it appeared in many devices without any Playstore update meaning it to be a Google's server update.


2. Incase you don't find it, you can go to the Playstore and update the Google app manually to find your Lens. Look at the clip above to watch how to open and use the Lens.
