Google has recently updated its AI powered camera. And Now Google’s AI-powered camera tool can recognize over a billion items. The company wrote in a new blog post.
The updated has arrived after a year since its launch Google Lens optical character recognition engine has been trained on reading more product labels. By recognizing text, Google Lens can now put names to the faces of more goods.

The 1 billion items comes from products available through Google Shopping, so it doesn’t include the items that are quite old or is not available on google shop. But it covers a huge range of things that could be very helpful for someone who’s simply just looking up an item they’re curious about.
