Sometimes people complain that there isn’t much on iOS as on Android. iOS is like a prison except that you get bragging rights. Well, don’t worry. Gradually, Google is bringing some Android features to iOS.
Google, back in June 2018, launched the “For You” recommendations section in its Maps app for Android. And in October 2018, Google released the Pixel 3 line-up, already coming with “Lens” integrated in the default camera app.
Now, Google has announced that the roll-out both the “For You” and “Lens” features are coming to iOS.
iPhone users that use Google Maps have had to go without the For You recommendations feature. They also haven’t had a taste of the live-functioning Google Lens that came out earlier this year. Only Android users enjoyed these two features but now iOS users are also about to have a bite.
The For You feature in Google Maps is now already available in over 40 countries on iOS. For Android, it is available in over 130 countries.
Now that iPhone users also have access to this feature, lots of people will have somewhere to turn to for ideas. This For You tool can even suggest places for you to go when you on a trip.
The live search feature of Google Lens is also available for iPhone users via the iOS Google app. Just as the name translates, you use images to do the search unlike the mundane typing letters to search. For example, to know the breed of a dog you’ve seen around, you just point your camera to it and get whatever information you may need.
