If image recognition features are something you are interested in, then you might be aware of Google Lens which has the ability to search for items based on what it looks like. Now the feature has been slowly making its way through various Google apps, such as Google Photos on iOS, but now it has managed to find its way to the main Google app.


In an announcement by Google, the company has revealed that the latest update to the Google app on iOS will be getting Google Lens integration. Lens will feature/function pretty much the same as what users have grown accustomed to, so if you’ve used it before, then you shouldn’t have any issues with it.

To access Lens, users just need to launch the app and tap the Lens icon in the search box. It will then open up the camera in which you can then point at an object you want to search for and it will do it. Now your mileage may vary, but we suppose it doesn’t hurt to give it a try if you’re trying to search for something online and don’t really know how to go about describing it.


The update should already be live so head on over to the iOS App Store to get your hands on the free update, or download the app if you haven’t done so already.
