Google Search adds AR and big Lens upgrades

Google Search adds AR and big Lens upgrades”

This feature is launching first in Google Go, our Search app for first-time smartphone users. With the help of augmented reality functions, Google Lens will be able to display suitable search results directly in AR. "It's another to see it up close in relation to the things around you", explains Google VP Aparna Chennapragada here. The aim - to help you get things done throughout your day. It's another to see it up close in relation to the things around you. Simply point the Lens camera at a receipt and it'll automatically calculate the tip - and split the bill for you. From three-dimensional augmented reality content to the news you need to read and the podcasts you need to hear, Google's going to make it more simple for you to cut right to the stuff you want.

According to sources, Google is already working with NASA, New Balance, Samsung, Target, Volvo, and other companies to create 3D models for Search. The results will include a button on the Knowledge Panel that says "View in 3D". Lens is a visual search and vision tool that can identify plants, animals, text, celebrities and more than a billion retail items. Now works in more than 100 languages Google Lens can now be your savior when you're in an unfamiliar place and you don't know the language.

Staff members were also asking attendees at Google I/O to test the feature on a brief walk, then surveying them for their opinion on AR walking navigation.

Further, for those customers who may be in an even bigger hurry, the Lens' new ability to recommend a restaurant's most popular meals essentially removes the decision-making process.

AR is expected to be widely used for online shopping, where users can see 3D models of anything from new clothes to furniture. For example, at the de Young Museum in San Francisco, you can use Lens to see hidden stories about the paintings, directly from the museum's curators beginning next month.

Speaking of food, if you are more into home cooking and have a subscription to Bon Appétit magazine for example, just point the camera at a recipe, and Lens will bring up instructional videos on how to cook that dish.
