Google is big, like really big, like civilization level big! So when a company this big introduces something, even the most apathetic person gets excited.
At this year’s annual I/O, Google introduced a lot of cool new things, but the one that got everyone’s attention was the “Google Lens”.
Although there have been several unsuccessful attempts in the past to launch the same technology, this time it looks that the image recognition technology will finally be able to take off. Since Google’s AI has become more sophisticated, it seems that now the Camera lens can be used in many more ways than just taking selfies.
The main highlights of the Google Lens are:
Business Details: Just point your mobile camera at store fronts and Google will provide you with the knowledge graph and other vital details about that business.
Connect WiFi: No need to manually enter the password, just click an image of the default username and password and your phone will automatically connect to WiFi.
Image Recognition: Now you can get results based on what you are seeing. Just take a picture of the flower you want to know more about and Google will provide you with all the details.
Exciting, isn’t it! Here’s the video.
