Google Photos can be a life-saving app on iPhones that do not have enough storage space to handle your photographic needs. But if that is not enough reason to have a Google application more installed on your iOS devices, then you should know that your best trick is finally coming to the iPhone.
Google Lens is Google's AI image recognition technology at its best. Just point the camera at different things with Google Lens on, and you'll get additional information about the things you're looking at, as well as advanced integration with other applications.
Google Lens is not a standalone application, it is integrated into the Google Photos experience, although it would be great to see it become a stand-alone application, maybe Apple should have a similar competitor in place soon. It was first released on Google Pixel 2 phones last fall and then moved to all Android devices earlier this month, before Google announced its arrival on iOS.
Starting today and during the next week, those of you on iOS can try previewing Google Lens to take quick measurements of a photo or discover more about the world around you. Make sure you have the latest version (3.15) of the application.https: //t.co/Ni6MwEh1bu pic.twitter.com/UyIkwAP3i9

If you are viewing monuments or photos in a museum through Lens, Google will tell you what you know about it. That's pretty clear if you want quick information about the things that surround you.
But that's not the only useful thing about Google Lens. Take a picture of a business card, and Lens will allow you to create a contact with that information. Look at the flyers that mention events, and they will be added to your calendar applications if you wish.
You will need Google Photos 3.15 or later to make Lens work on your iPhone and iPad. To invoke it, simply look for the lens icon inside the application.
Because this is a Google product, Google Lens collects data about your activity. It's not a surprise there. However, you can remove the history of your lens from your Google account, just as you would with everything else that the company collects about you.
