Back in 2017, Google Lens was announced. According to Wikipedia, Google Lens is an app announced by Google during Google I/O 2017, designed to bring up relevant information using visual analysis. What it does is, it scans the objects and surrounding and shows relevant data based on it. Like contact information from a business card or information about a landmark.
Google previously kept it exclusive to their Pixel smartphones but in MWC 2018, they announced they will bring this out for compatible flagship devices. Now the feature is available inside google assistant on Galaxy S8, S9, and Note 8 running the beta version of the Google app. If you are not a beta tester then you can sign up here.
To use this service, launch the Google Assistant and then on the right bottom tap on the Google’s Lens Logo. It will open up with Camera UI and show relevant information based on the objects it scanned.
