In the beginning, Google Lens was made available only to Pixel users, but before Lens, Google Goggles was an early app version and it was first released past year for Pixel users exclusively too.

Lens should also be available on Google Assistant as it is on Pixel phones, but that implementation has not rolled out to Android users as of now. This means soon all Android smartphones will be able to use the feature via Google Photos.

Google has announced that all Google Photos users will have access to Google Lens.

Google Photos for Android is available through Google Play.

If you are an Android user and have Google Photos installed, get ready to experience Lens. It can also create contacts from business cards that you scan through the Lens. Google had announced the feature at the MWC. It also works with other objects in nature and Lens even recognizes global dishes and their recipes all through pictures and simple icons.

Proponents point out that the two most recent tests succeeded, including one past year , and say the system has improved. "Never. Russia does not extradite its citizens to anyone", Putin told NBC when asked about the possibility of extradition.

We still can't forget company CEO Sundar Pichai's Google Lens demo at the Google I/O 2017 event. Lens also pulls off neat tricks, such as scanning QR codes and connecting to Wi-Fi networks by scanning the password on the back of your router.

Google Lens, powered by AI has had its biggest expansion, now rolling out widely for other Android users.

More features will be added in the future and Google will continue to work on improving Lens recognition for animals and plants.

It is said that Google Lens is intuitive enough to identify that it is looking at a Wi-Fi network's name and password, then it offers the user the option to tap a button and connect automatically.
