It is from the Google Photos gallery that it will be possible for an Android smartphone to use the Lens function. With the latter, the user can scan a camera-facing object and obtain information about it via a web search. There is a detailed description of the structure facing the camera as a historic building (the tweet above is a perfect example). But other possibilities can be explored thanks to Lens: when a business card is photographed, Lens can save the contact directly in the directory of the Android smartphone. Wi-Fi networks are also concerned: now no need to enter a code – sometimes tedious, Lens will scan it.
