Google have committed $300 million over the next three years to improve the news we see.

Google Lens was introduced in Google Photos and Assistant past year, and now will be directly available in the camera app on LGE, Motorola, Xiaomi, Sony Mobile, HMD/Nokia, Transsion, TCL, OnePlus, BQ, Asus and the Google Pixel.

A brand new mobile app will also be available on iOS and Android by next week.

Android P is only available in beta mode for now, with eligible devices including the Google Pixel, as well as some Sony, Xiaomi, Nokia, Oppo and Vivo phones.

Waymo's driverless auto service is heading to Phoenix before the end of the year.

Ronaldo forsees Zidane's first XI in Champions League final against Liverpool
It was Barca's thumping 5-0 win over Ronaldo's Madrid in 2010 that really suggested that Pep had the Indian sign over CR7, though. Zinedine Zidane's men are third in the league and trail Atletico by three points but have a game in hand over their local rivals.

The 33-year-old has not yet returned to training with his teammates but Zidane remains in no doubt that Ronaldo will be back for the Champions League final.


Waymo has been testing out the technology on public roads in the metropolitan area through it's "early riders" program - but soon, anyone will be able to download the app and hail a ride.

After passengers book a ride through the app, he says an autonomous vehicle will pull up and "whisk them away" to their destination. But the biggest breakthrough probably comes with its Google Lens. Another feature that some of us would have already noticed in Google Translate is that Lens will be able to recognize words where in you could copy and paste a word from the real world onto your phone. According to Aparna Chennapragada, Google's vice president of AR, VR and vision-based products, "This is an example of how the camera is not just answering questions, but it is putting the answers right where the questions are".

Those features are expected to arrive in the coming weeks. The AI enabled feature is claimed to detect the person of user's photo and leave them in colour, including subjects clothing and stuff related to them, while the background in the frame is set to black and white to highlight the subject's properties. However, the three main features to Google Lens in summer are Smart Text Selection, Style match and Real-time results. Publications can specifically be followed and easily subscribed to via a "Subscribe with Google" feature.

In the wake of the rise of fake news spread by platforms like Facebook during the 2016 election and general fears about social media's effects on the way people consume news and information, there is likely to be intense scrutiny on how Google's AI performs.

From there, users can create a shortlist of their favorite destinations that they can share with their friends. All you need to do is just point out the Camera to a particular thing and the Google Lens will start processing and it will show you the correct information using the Image Recognition tool.
