It must be pointed out that users should have the latest version of the app to use Google Lens. For those of you that don't know about Google Lens, it is a feature that can recognize what's in your pictures and do a Google search on objects in your photos.

Google Lens is a tool that Google launched previous year, but it has only been available for Pixel users.

Now it appears Google is ready to expand the effort, as it has confirmed that it is rolling out the feature to all Android users as long as they are able to run the most recent version of Google Photos. Google Lens users can also create a contact by scanning a business card.

The feature is now rolling out to Android users (and iOS users later on) and can be found in the Photos app.

Will Texans show interest in players who participated in protests?
Houston traded a first round pick in the 2017 NFL Draft and a first round pick in the 2018 NFL Draft in exchange for the Cleveland Browns' first round pick in 2017 in order to draft Deshaun Watson last season.

But don't get too excited yet; even if you upgrade your OS and Google Photos, Lens may not immediately appear.

In our experience, Google Lens offered mixed results. 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.

We still can't forget company CEO Sundar Pichai's Google Lens demo at the Google I/O 2017 event.

All Android phones are now getting one of the Pixel 2's most useful features: Google Lens. The Next Web reported that the most recent update allows Lens to identify and provide contextual information to landmarks. The Android security update for March 2018 are already live for a number of devices.
