The US technology giant Google is officially rolling its visual search feature "Lens" to Apple iOS devices. Now, the company is peeking over the fence towards Cupertino, and giving its rival platform some of the augmented reality love. When users take a photo of a book or painting, for example, Lens recognizes it and spits out information telling you more details about the object.

According to Google, it is rolling out on version 3.15 of the iOS app starting today with a complete release for all users over the next week.

The Verge notes that "Lens is an on-demand object recognition tool, accessible through the Google Photos app".

To get your hands on it now and give it a whirl, make sure you're running the latest version of Google Photos for Android or iOS, and open up a picture from your gallery. That is, if you took a photo of the sticker on your router, it could help you to paste that information in your Wi-Fi settings to get you connected.

Google Lens will only work if your device language is set to English.

Taking advantage of Google Lens is straightforward, but requires the use of Google Photos on your iPhone or iPad. Tap the newly-added Google Lens button, and the system will automatically analyze it and offer whatever actions it believes are most useful. Instead, you might see the Information "i" that shows up on my device when I try to access Lens. However, you can delete your Lens history from your Google account, just like you'd do with everything else the company collects about you.
