Google Lens can now recognise 15 billion thingsSan Francisco, Oct 18 (IANS) Google Lens which can search what you see using your camera can now recognise 15 billion things, up from one billion just two years ago, to help users identify plants, animals and landmarks, among other things.

The search engine giant announced new ways users can use Google Lens and augmented reality (AR) while learning and shopping as part of its SearchOn event on Thursday.

Another area where the camera can be helpful is shopping — especially when what you are looking for is hard to describe in words.

With Lens, you can already search for a product by taking a photo or screenshot.

“Now, we’re making it even easier to discover new products as you browse online on your phone. When you tap and hold an image on the Google app or Chrome on Android, Lens will find the exact or similar items, and suggest ways to style it,” Aparna Chennapragada, Vice President at Google, said in a blog post.

“This feature is coming soon to the Google app on iOS, she said.

Lens uses Style Engine technology which combines the world’s largest database of products with millions of style images.
