Google Lens: The Most Underrated Google Tech

Google lens is an AI powered technology that uses your smartphone camera and deep machine learning to not just detect an object in front of the camera lens but understand it and offer actions such as scanning, translation, shopping, finding answers and more.

Google lens is an image recognition technology designed to bring up relevant information related to objects it identifies using visual analysis based on a neural network.

Translate: You can point your phone at text and, with Google Translate plugging in, live translate text, this can also work offline. It could even be a personal subtitle to your favorite movies. 

Smart Text Selection: You can point your phone's camera at text, then highlight that text within Google Lens, and copy it to use on your phone. For instance, you can point your phone to your login credentials and be able to copy/paste it into your login screen.

Smart Text search: When you highlight text in Google Lens, you can also search that text with Google. This is handy if you want to look up the definition of a word.

Shopping: If you see a shoe or a sneaker you like while on the street, Google Lens can identify that piece and similar articles of fashion. This works for just about any item you can think of.

Google homework questions: You can just scan the question and see what Google comes up with. It works.

Search around you: If you point your camera around you, Google Lens will detect and identify your surroundings. That might be details on a landmark or details about types of food - including recipes.

Lens was one of Google's biggest announcements back in 2017. Since then, Google Lens has come to the majority of Android devices - if you don't have it, then the app is available to download on Google Play Store, although some phones have this app fused into it. Google lenses make life a lot easier in a number of ways. Just point your camera to anything and get extensive information on the go.
