Lens helps where words often fail us.
Like shopping for a particular style.
Things where it's often difficult to describe in words, or perhaps impossible.
Lens also helps accelerate common tasks like capturing text from the real world.
With the Snapdragon 855, this is able to turn your phone's camera from a tool to capture memories to a window into the world around you.
But it's not just about text.
Computer vision helps us understand objects and scenes and connect that understanding to billions of places, products, and things that Google understands.
An example of one way we'll take advantage of 5G is something we're calling AR auto complete The viewfinder in this demo understands what it's seeing through computer vision, and then auto completes the scene with assets it downloads on the fly.
Some of these assets, like this William Sonoma are 100 megabytes, so having a high bandwidth, low latency connection is critical To enabling the best and most immersive user experiences
