Google Lens is already a very popular feature among flagship smartphones with Google Assistant integrated. Earlier on this month, Google announced its plans of bringing the feature to many handsets for other manufacturers.
Well, apparently the newest company to add the Lens feature to its camera application is Sony. The Japanese firm is providing a new update that integrates the Google Lens feature directly in the camera app of its latest 2018 flagships, the Xperia XZ2 and Xperia XZ2 Compact. With the help of Google Lens, the users of the standard of compact XZ2 will be able to find products online, copy and paste text, learn more about landmarks, identify plants or animals, add events to the calendar and more.
In order to have the benefits of this newer update, the users of these two smartphones will need to update the Google application through PlayStore. Also worth noting that this Google Lens inclusion will be rolled out gradually, so it may take some time to arrive for all eligible Xperia smartphones across the globe.
Probably Sony will bring Google Lens to other smartphones on its portfolio, even the ones released in 2016 and 2017, however, the latest 2018 releases are the first and most plausible choice of the manufacturer. Sooner or later we’ll see other smartphone makers integrating this convenient feature on the smartphones.
