Google Lens new features hands-on

  • Published on:  5/9/2018
  • Google Lens, the company’s AI and AR platform for understanding the world and parsing language, is going to be everywhere soon. It now lives in the native camera of Pixel devices and other Android handsets from LG, Xiaomi, and others. It’s also getting much smarter: it’s now able to do real-time object recognition and parse text from real-world objects like books and dinner menus.

    Apple is just seating there silent. They're doing very well, of course. It's just that has Apple lost its excitement.

    To any Apple manager... if it's not too late. Sell Siri to Google. Maybe for a half decent Starbucks card. Cost of lunches can add up fast.
