Google Lens now accessible through Google Photos for Android

Android P will allow you to use your phone as a Bluetooth mouse or keyboard

Coming as a great news for all Android folks, Google Lens is coming to all Android devices starting from today. The minimum update and support period page for the Nexus 5X and Nexus 6P details that the devices have "no guaranteed Android version updates after" September 2017, and no guaranteed security updates after November 2018.

Last year, Google had introduced its AI-based photo learning feature called Google Lens at its I/O event. Anyone can download it, but Android P is not yet intended for consumer use.

Google has announced a lot of changes in Android P for developers, although we must bear in mind that the final version could vary significantly, so you have to take the information with tweezers.

If you forgot or are not familiar with what Google Lens is all about, it's an app or a built-in tool that lets you scan real world images and then gives you information about it. In addition, the Pixel C tablet will also stay put on Android 8.1 Oreo.

Google will also enable simulated views to see how display notches will alter the look of your app.

Google has officially launched Android P.

The support doesn't mean much for existing Android phones. The new updated File Go app allows a user to check out the new features of an application before the features are made available for the stable builds of the apps.

The feature is now rolling out to Android users (and iOS users later on) and can be found in the Photos app.

In a rather interesting move, Google is finally embracing dual cameras in a bigger way, announcing support for simultaneous streams from "two or more" cameras.

Google is making several notification tweaks with Android P, too.

Android P works around the notch modern smartphones have, and this will also make it easier for app developers to optimize their apps, so they can either work around the notch or keep it right under it and under the status bar. You will be able to use Smart Replies, stickers and images directly from within a notification when responding. The Android team explains that being able to access both cameras at the same time enables developers to create features that aren't possible using only one camera, like bokeh effects, stereo vision and "seamless zoom".
