It's that time of the year for Google as they hold their annual developers conference in California. Check

Google’s annual developers conference is in full swing starting yesterday and ending on the 10th May. It’s held in California which allows tech giants such as Android, Chrome and OS to showcase and unveil what their future looks like with the latest tech products to come.

Google Lens

Google’s latest camera tech is set to wow it’s consumers as they confirm and announce their AI image recognition lens. It has the ability to recognize dog and cat breeds, shops and restaurants etc. 

It will initially be launched on the pixel phone, but will follow close by on Android phones such as the LG-G7. 


They’re also providing updates such as smart text selection which enables you to copy and paste text from reality in to your phone (e.g. copying a shop sign in to a text message), and the ability to search the definition of words from a document. 

Camera-enabled navigation system

We’ve all had that moment where we try and follow the blue dot somewhere on our phone map but end up in the opposite direction at the wrong end of the place where you’re supposed to be. 

Luckily Google know and understand our problems which is why they have come up with the perfect solution. Just hold your phone up on the Google Lens and it will point you in the right direction.


Shared AR experiences

Shared experiences make everything ten times better, so we can say Google has answered our prayers in the Augmented Reality world. Android and iOS users can join in the fun as you can place digital objects and designs on your phone to display in the real world. They have expanded with this as you can now do it across textured walls.


That's not all
