CNET: Google makes its AR search tool Lens available for your phone, too. “Google Lens isn’t an app. Instead, it’s a capability Google is building into other apps — so far on Google Photos and the Google Assistant, its digital helper akin to Amazon’s Alexa.

With the Assistant, Lens can give you that same sort of information just by pointing your phone at an object — no photo required. “
