Google Lens is an app that uses AI to recognise objects using a phone's camera.

The first preview for Android P is available for the Google Pixel, Pixel XL, Pixel 2, and Pixel 2 XL.

Word on the street was that Google was planning to launch the first developer preview for its upcoming Android P release very soon, and it looks like that word was right on track. It can identify brands, restaurants, or objects you see in real life, or scan things like business cards or flyers for phone numbers and addresses. Since then, Google has been testing this feature in beta, but now the Android maker has confirmed that the feature has been rolled out to all Android users with the Google Photos app.

Google on Wednesday announced Android P is now available through its developer program.

Google has taken note and released Android Oreo (Go Edition) that helps negate the performance drop for users not owning flagship devices.

Google has announced that it is rolling out Google Lens to all Android users that run Google Photos app on their devices. Lens basically works as a visual search engine, using your smartphone's camera to identify what you see in the real world. "To start, make sure you have the latest version of the "Google Photos" app for Android", the company wrote on Twitter late on Tuesday.

Lens basically works like a "smart" magnifying glass.

Google says that flashing the preview to a Pixel device will wipe the smartphone of its current contents, so folks should ensure everything is backed up if they're seeking to return a phone to its previous state.

Google Lens can do more than just telling you about when a monument was built and what are its opening hours. Pixel 2 devices will also have support for Qualcomm's Hexagon HVX driver, giving developers further improvements in performance on those devices.
