Without a doubt, it is one of the best apps that the company – which has been 25 years old – has developed, and it is worth trying it. Some of its most interesting functions are power digitize text from an imagesolve mathematical problems and obtain information about monuments and emblematic places, among others.
There are times when it is easy to forget what species the plants you have at home are and what care each one needs. There are applications that, using the camera, are capable of identifying them, and Google Lens can do the same.
