Google Lens now rolling out to Google Photo users

If you are an Android user and have Google Photos installed, get ready to experience Lens. This is the first major expansion of the tool but is only limited to the Photos app and not to the Google Assistant which Pixel users can actually use. Lens is an AI-powered technology that uses your smartphone camera and deep machine learning (Google's specialty) not only to detect an object but also understand what it sees.

But don't get too excited yet; even if you upgrade your OS and Google Photos, Lens may not immediately appear. Google Lens literally turns your Android phone into a visual search engine.
