Google Lens is getting prepped for its release, and it’s evident in its new feature. Its predecessor, Goggle, is already available to first-gen and second-gen Pixel phone users. But, it is enclosed within the Photos app and hasn’t yet shown up in Assistant (this was promised in May at I/O). The delay is based on a reason among a few, where Google Photos v.38 gets a new animated show that plays during the Lens analysis of the photo.
In the video below, we see an effective neural network-ish overlay that is represented by colorful dots jumping on the photo being analyzed in the latest Google Photos, providing a more attractive visual compared to its older version.
For now, as per tests by experts in the market, the latest Google Photos APK is compatible with the Pixel phones only so far. According to Google employees, Assistant will get the Lens within a few weeks now. If you are looking to test the new Lens animation, get the Google Photos v3.8 from APK Mirror.
