Google Lens Rolling Out for iOS Users within Google Photos

Google Lens to become available to iOS users in coming week

Google on Friday announced the official rollout of its on-demand object recognition tool, Google Lens, for iOS devices. Now, the company is peeking over the fence towards Cupertino, and giving its rival platform some of the augmented reality love.

Previously, Google Lens is only available for Pixel smartphones, Google started rolling out the feature to all Android phones with Google Photos installed earlier this month. You can snap a picture of a friend or co-workers business card, and their information will save as a contact within your device. Google Lens also works on phone numbers, addresses, and event information.

Google Lens was first announced a year ago at Google's I/O developer conference, and is made possible by the recent advancements in machine learning and image recognition technologies.

If Google Lens hasn't "rolled out" to your device yet, you'll see its "i" instead, as I did this morning.

But that's hardly the only useful thing about Google Lens.

A flyer or event billboard: You can add that event to your calendar. To see if you're on version 3.15 of Google Photos, open the app, tap the menu bar in the top left corner, tap the settings icon and then tap About Google Photos, which is at the very bottom of the screen. Google Lens activity is saved in that timeline for future recall. Lens will also pull up the reviews on the location, and if that's not enough, Google Search results on the landmark. However, you can delete your Lens history from your Google account, just like you'd do with everything else the company collects about you.
