Google Lens can identify dog and cat breeds

by John_A

Now that the Android-first Google Lens feature has finally rolled out to the Photos app on iOS devices, nearly all mobile users can appreciate a recently-added feature: Identifying pet breeds. Also, a new wrinkle added this week will have Google Photos automatically create a book starring your pet. Yes, the might of artificial intelligence has been mustered to determine what kind of dog or cat is in the photo you just took. The only thing left for humans to decide is if they prefer a hardcover or softcover edition.

Last year Google announced that Photos search can comb through your library by particular breed, species (including animals that aren’t cats or dogs) or emoji. 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 videos of your favorite weird animals.

Update:Android Police found notes about these features in Lens last month in the Google Support forums. It also can identify different plants and flowers, as well.
