Google Lens starts rolling out to iPhones and iPads

Google Lens starts rolling out to iPhones and iPads
Google Lens is slowly making its way to many Android devices, but iOS users haven't been forgotten. The AI-powered visual search app developed by Google will soon be available to all iPhone and iPad users.

If you own an iPhone or iPad and have installed Google Photos, you might get Google Lens as soon as this week. Google announced that starting today and rolling out over the next week, iOS users will be able to preview try out the preview of Google Lens.

In order for that to work, it's necessary to have the latest version (3.15) of Google Photos installed on your iOS device. You should have no issues downloading it from the App Store where it's been released on March 3.

Keep in mind that if you don't see a preview of Google Lens showing up in the latest version of Google Photos app this week, then you should be patient since this seems to be a staged rollout. The new feature will make its way to all compatible iOS devices over the next few weeks.

If they work on Google lens and add more features it will probably be more useful than Google assistant

I've tried out Google Lens about a dozen times so far (via Photos) and it's surprisingly good. My last run at it was with a picture (of a picture) of some random Chinese vegetable (which doesn't have much presence on Google search to begin with) - and Lens still nailed it.
