Microsoft Pix app for iOS is updated with improved AI to read business cards "faster and easier"

Microsoft has updated its Microsoft Pix app for iOS to v1.7. The app now features improved AI capabilities that will allow it to detect and read business cards easier and faster than before. The app will add the name and phone number printed on the card to your Apple iPhone's contacts list. With the update, this can now be done in both landscape and portrait orientation. The update also adds a voice-to-text feature which Microsoft says "improves accessibility."

Microsoft Pix is available only in the Apple App Store and is not offered to Android users. Microsoft says that using the app is like having a professional photographer inside your phone, helping you take better photos "without extra effort."

You must have an iOS device running iOS 10 or later to use the app. If you have yet to install it on your iPhone or iPad, click on the sourcelink. And don't forget to watch a clip about the app that was produced by Microsoft, and can be seen by tapping on the video at the top of this story. There are some other videos about Microsoft Pix that you'll find directly below.

I carried business cards, from the early 80's, until QR codes became popular. Now, if someone wants my business contact info, I pull up a photo of the QR code with a ton of info, let them scan it and it pops up the info on their screen.
