Google roll out new Lens AI features

Speaking at today's 'A.I.Stralian Stories' event in Sydney, Google's VP of Google Photos and Communications Anil Sabharwal announced the impending rollout of several new features for the company's Google Lens app.

Initially shown off at this year's Google I/O 2018 developers conference, the Google Lens app now supports two new features.

The first, called 'style-matching' allows users to highlight an item of clothing in the real-world using their camera and then do a visual search for fashion or accessories that would complement that item.

The other new feature that's been rolled out is real-time results, which allows you to receive Google Lens suggestions or tool-tips based on what you're actively looking at through your smartphone's camera - rather than having Lens scan the image after the fact.

Sabharwal reiterated plans to bring other new features like color pop and recolorization, shown off at both today's event and I/O 2018, to the company's Photos app later this year.

If you can afford the price tag, it is well worth the money. It out performs any other laptop I have tried for gaming, and the transportable design and incredible display also make it ideal for work.

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.
