The Lens basically scans the images for different things like phone numbers, dates, addresses, landmarks, books, music albums, movies, artwork and more.

After initially making it available to those with Android devices, Google has begun rolling out its Google Lens image recognition software to those with iOS devices. That is, if you took a photo of the sticker on your router, it could help you to paste that information in your Wi-Fi settings to get you connected. "Make sure you have the latest version of the app", the Google Photos team tweeted on Friday. Look at flyers that mention events, and they'll be added to your calendar apps if you so desire.

This is pretty neat (but also creepy), leveraging the company's AI efforts to identify objects and places.

Apparently, it's also going to be clever enough to remove objects from photos, Photoshop-style - though that feature and some of the others Google has mentioned haven't been launched yet. Select a photo that is on your device, and then select the Google Lens icon.

The "Show dirty lens warning" joins 'HDR+ control, ' and displays a warning when "the lens may be too dirty to take high quality pictures" - a tool Brittney Spears could sorely use.

Google Lens debuted on Google's Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL devices in October 2017, and users love it.

If your web and app activity setting is switched on, Google Lens activity will be saved to his/her Google account. We're not seeing the feature in Canada yet on our iPhone.

Because this is a Google product, Google Lens does collect data about your activity.
