How to Use Google Lens

- Open Google Photos app
- Navigate to the picture
- Tap the Google Lens icon at the bottom of the screen, before the trash icon.
After carrying out these steps, Google lens will provide information based on what the photos are about using Artificial Intelligence, based on the probability that Google lens understands the content of the picture you took
That means Google Lens will offer different information based on what the photo is of, at least in theory.
