Google Lens Upgrade With Dining and Translations is Rolling Out

Google Lens to get new filters this week applicable for Android and iOS users

Earlier this month at the I/O developer's conference, Google announced that they were bringing some new things to Google Lens to make it more useful in practical ways. Prime examples of this includes the new Dining and Translate features. Lens in Google Go is just over 100KB and works on phones that cost less than $50. When you're dining in a restaurant and you can't choose what to order, Lens can highlight which dishes are popular from their physical menu.

To recap, the updated Google Lens has new filters so you will be able to see specific results and actions without so many steps. That big update is coming to Android devices that are ARCore-compatible later this week. Using your device's camera you can search for anything you can see. Not only that, but Lens can help split the bill - point your camera at the receipt, and Lens will calculate the amounts each person has to pay. Utilizing this interesting feature, users can now translate text from upwards of 100 languages. Point Lens at the WiFi password and it'll automatically copy it, so you can paste it anywhere on your phone. Every real-world object becomes a point of interest that, thanks to a mix of machine learning, computer vision, and Google's Knowledge Graph, is also something you can learn more about.

Shopping: In this mode, the user needs to point the camera at clothes, furniture, home decor or anything else. The features can be used via Google Assistant, Google Search app and Google Photos.

The new feature Translate allows the app to recognise languages by simply pointing the focus of the camera at the text. Especially if the menu is in a language that you are unfamiliar with - or uses some fancy words that you may not know what they mean.
