Google’s much-anticipated app, the Lookout App has finally been released and is now available exclusively for the Pixel users. Google had unveiled this app during the 2018’s Google’s I/O Developers Conference. Well, the app is now officially available to install and explore by the users of Google’s Pixel Smartphone users.
The Lookout App aims to provide assistance to the blind and visually-impaired users who can’t see things with their eyes. The app is developed with Artificial Intelligence to figure out the objects through the Smartphone’s native camera app.
Apart from identifying the objects through the AI technology, the app is also capable enough to read the text, labels, scan barcodes and much more. It can identify the currencies as well.
The app has been made available exclusively for Google’s Pixel users in the United States by Google.
The developers were working hard to improve the functionality and the overall user interface of this app since it was announced last year during the I/O conference last year.
Google has its own Google Lens app which uses the same Artifical Intelligence technology to identify the objects, and now the Lookout app is also using the same technology which is making the life of blind people easier. Of course, the Lookout App has got a lot of improvements and it comes with a set of new features which you may not find in Google’s Lens app.
To make the most of this app, Google suggest the users of Pixel devices wear the device on their neck. Or the user should keep it on the front side of his shirt’s pocket or coat’s pocket so the camera app can see the things around.
The Camera App can view the things and with the help of the Lookout app, the Google Assistant will come to rescue. If you are living in the US and using Google’s own Pixel smartphone, then you can grab this app from the link mentioned below.
Note: The Pixel device should be updated to the Android 8.0 Oreo Operating System as the app is compatible with Android 8.0 Oreo or the above version of Google.
It is unclear when the giant will release the same app for other Smartphones. We will let you update when it will be released for other devices in a short time.
