So Google has rolled out a new update for its Google Lens augmented reality app. This update features a redesign for the home page and user interface.

The app now loads open for users to choose between “Search with your camera” or to go through your screenshots.

This allows the user to easily use any photos in their gallery for analysis and augmented reality.

Other aspects of the Google Lens app user interface has also received a redesign. For example, now the bottom corners of the app are now curved.

Google Lens is an app that uses augmented reality to easily search and interact with what you see.

Google Lens can be used to easily scan and translate any text in real time, or from images.

The app can even be used to identify plants and animals. Whether it’s a dog you saw in the park, or a flower in your friend’s apartment.
