Google has announced their Google Lens feature earlier at their Google I/O 2017 event. However, for some reasons, it was not available for iOS users at that time. Google now officially rolling out its “Lens” on the iOS devices.
Google Lens os the recognization which you can access through their official Google Photos application. It works on the simple way. When any user takes the image of any product or any book or any logo, Google Lens will automatically recognize that image and shows up the results on the device screen. If you want to explore more about what you can simply tap on that and get into the whole details.
