Google Lens has been downloaded by half a billion people
It took the Google Lens app two and a half years for its downloads to surpass the 500 million mark. And although this is a very solid result for a niche program, it definitely deserves more!
It is unlikely that anyone will know about Google Lens for the first time, but just in case, we will remind you. It is an app using augmented reality (AR) technology that makes the smartphone camera uniquely useful. It can be used to translate text, punch the names of goods or unfamiliar things, just by looking at them through the camera of the mobile.
Google Lens is constantly being updated with new features. Last year, Google added the ability to recognize text, followed by voice acting or sending to a computer with the press of just one button. For example, you can scan an important document, note or synopsis, quickly translate it into electronic format and save it to your PC. Five years ago, students could only dream of such technologies.
Another killer feature of Google Lens is that you can use it to solve mathematical equations. Moreover, you get not only an answer, but also a detailed algorithm for solving the problem.
The most basic features that millions of people use every day are translation from foreign languages (it is convenient, you do not need to type anything in the translator), search for unfamiliar things (from finding out the breed of dogs or plants, to searching for products in online stores), as well as scanning QR codes and barcodes, for which you do not need to download additional applications.
Well, travelers will definitely appreciate the ability to quickly identify attractions, read reviews about establishments and watch their opening hours.
We will not describe the rest of the functions, since it will take a lot of time. The program is really useful and often helps out. Here is a link to Google lens in the official Play Market – click . Download it and you will wonder why you haven’t used it before.
