Google Lens can perform many different tasks with your smartphone's camera thanks to advanced machine learning, such as foreign text translations, landmark identification, and contact card business cards to name a few. With this year's Google I / O conference, we have another cool lens feature to look forward to the receipt bill.
To work out, if you are out for dinner at a restaurant with friends, when you get the bill, your math skills have to come out. Actually, your calculator app or custom shortcut is likely to come out, but what if you can only point the phone's camera at the receipt and get a receipt-specific calculator on the screen to appear? That's exactly what Google Lens can do.
Right now, it's in beta testing, and when released, it will first be available only on Google Go. The lightweight version of Google Search is designed for super-budget phones with low storage and less processing power. After launching on Google Go, it will be made available in other apps like Google and Google Assistant.
To use it, you open Google Go, tap the Google Lens icon, point the camera to the bill, and watch because the calculator appears with the total bill and a suggested tip amount is added for your total. You will be able to change the tip percentage if you go lower or higher, which will recalculate the tip and total. There is a box to remove taxes from the tip calculation if you need it.
Even better, there is a "Split" box where you can enter the number of friends or family who want to pay separately. Just enter the number where and the Google Lens calculator shows how much each person is guilty of including tips.
] While not available at the moment, we do not need to wait too long to get our hands on this feature . According to Aparna Chennapragada, Vice President and Head of Camera and AR Products, Google Lens automatic tip counter will roll out sometime in May 2019 along with other significant improvements. Of course, we will go through the function closer, when we take care of it, so stay tuned.
