Google Lens Now Features Business Card Contact Creation and Provides Landmark Descriptions

Google Lens now gives users the ability to create contacts from business cards and offers landmark descriptions for on-the-go information…

Google Photos is great. Now, Google Lens makes it even better. The search giant announced it’s expanding Google Lens capabilities. And, it’s quite impressive. For those unfamiliar, Google Lens is a visual analysis app. What it does is allow a user to capture an image and then Lens identifies it. Now, that technology appears right inside Google Photos.

Google Lens Business Card Contact Creation and Landmark Descriptions Debut

Just yesterday, the search company introduced two new features for Google Lens: create contacts from business cards and get on-the-spot landmark descriptions. 


The contact capture works really fast. Simply take a photo of any business card and the app does the rest. And, because Google Lens is now built inside Google Photos, it’s great for identifying landmarks. Not only does it provide the names of landmarks, it also displays pertinent information, such as operating hours and more.

Both features are now available on Android, with iOS coming soon. To install Google Photos or update to the latest version, download it here.
