When Google launched Google Lens in the summer of 2017, it changed the way we search things on the internet. It is a visual search tool which enables users to take a picture of the things they want to know about and all the data related to their search is available on their phones. For instance, point the camera at a painting, and google lens will tell you about the artist or the artwork’s historical era. See, it’s that simple.
You all must be hating the situation when you lose people during the conferences and fail to write their contact details. Well, not anymore because google lens now can store information on business cards as contacts, and even describe landmarks you’ve spotted.
To do this, open a photo of a business card that you’ve got in Google Photos and navigate to the lens. Tap it and the lens will create a contact for you automatically with the help of information on the card.
Rolling out today, Android users can try Google Lens to do things like create a contact from a business card or get more info about a famous landmark. To start, make sure you have the latest version of the Google Photos app for Android: https://t.co/KCChxQG6Qm
