  • March 2018 Factory Images and OTA Files are now Available for Nexus and Pixel Devices

During MWC 2018, Google announced it would expand its Lens object recognition software, originally exclusive to the Pixel 2 and 2 XL, to more Android devices via the Google Photos app and, eventually, the Assistant itself. Up until now, this tool was available only to Pixel devices.

We are in the first week of March, and, it's that time of the month when Mountain View based Internet search giant Google releases the latest Android security patch for Nexus and Pixel devices.

With Lens, you can create a contact from a photo of a business card or get more information about a famous landmark that you've captured. For example, you could launch the Google Photos app and point your phone at a flower and learn what kind of flower it is.
