Google Lens Rolling Out to Every Android Phone, iOS Coming Soon

Google Pixel 2XL

Google Lens was first announced at I/O 2017, the company's developer conference that took place last May.

Well, as it turns out, there is indeed an Easter egg in Android P Developer Preview 1, but some people may be dissapointed to learn that it's a rather simple one.

So, let's dive right into what Android P offers this time around. Google is adamant that this release is exclusively for developers at this point, so we don't suggest that you try downloading images right this instant to install on your personal Android device. "To start, make sure you have the latest version of the Google Photos app for Android", Google tweeted. If you're new to this sort of update for the software, Google has a handy guide for flashing system images that lays out all the instructions which are posted on the download page, so as long as you follow the steps given things should be fine. There's also a None option, which is good, since there are still phones out there that won't have a cutout.

It seems we won't have to wait for March 14th (Pi Day) for the Android P developer preview, with Google opening the Developer Preview today. We're excited to add HEIF (heic) image encoding to the platform. The service relies heavily on AI and machine learning to recognise certain objects like a flower, a restaurant or a landmark by pointing the phones camera at it. Let us know in the comment section below. There will also be quick replies within the notification preview for a message, allowing you to quickly respond to a message. Jobs can declare their estimated data size, signal prefetching, and specify detailed network requirements.

So, yes, you can expect more iPhone X-looking Android devices in the future. By doing this, users can maintain contact with others without having to jump out of another app they may be using. A hardware abstraction layer (HAL) provides the underlying API for enumerating a variety of Secure Elements (eSE, UICC, and others). ART now uses profile information for on-device rewriting of DEX files, with reductions up to 11 percent across a range of popular apps.

Power efficiency: Doze, App Standby, and Background Limits have been refined to further improve battery life.

To put it in the most layman's way possible, your phone, when using a particular app with this functionality, will bounce its location off of local WiFi Access Points (APs), determining your exact position inside of a structure such as a shopping mall or airport.
