Google Assisstant finally works on Pixel C tablets

  Google Assisstant finally works on Pixel C tablets Google Assistant has been available on Pixel phones from the get-go and has spread to virtually every device that's even vaguely capable of handling it, but there has been a glaring exception: the Pixel C. Google confirmed to Engadget that the deployment started today.

Once you do this, Google Lens will scan your picture and show any information that's relevant to it. Google Lens can currently identify buildings/landmarks, company logos, cat / dog breeds , text, paintings, movies, etc. In addition to phones and tablets

We’ve all had a lot of fun playing around with image recognition machine learning AIs from the likes of Google and Microsoft. In a sample photo of a dog , the AI identified it as “animal,” “pet,” and even specifically labels it as a “Golden Retriever.”

Which could be helpful if you want to find the latest pic of your sibling's pet but don't want to sift through your entire camera roll. The announcement came with a few reminders of what Google Lens could already do, like make photo books or videos of your favorite weird animals.

Snapchat now lets advertisers sell products directly through Lenses .
This week Snapchat is rolling out Shoppable AR, a new feature that makes it even easier for advertisers to sell goods through sponsored lenses. Now companies can essentially close that shopping loop, while keeping users inside the Snapchat experience. Shoppable AR makes it possible to add a button directly to a Lens, which users can tap on to visit a website where they can learn more about -- or more to the point -- just buy the product. Other options include a link to install an app or a “long form” video like a trailer. All of that happens directly inside the app.
