The Lens will be rolled out for more Android devices and make an appearance on iOS, the company announced alongside ARCore announcements.

The Google Lens will soon be available to all English-language users for both Android and iOS platforms. Users will be able to scan their photos for objects and landmarks, regardless of the platform they use.

Additionally, Lens in Assistant will be rolled out to 'compatible flagship devices' in the coming weeks. Google will also be adding support for other devices as they move ahead.

Apart from the extended compatibility, Lens is also receiving some functionality upgrades. The Lens will soon be able to recognize common animals and plants, including few dog breeds and flowers.

Building on the momentum to create a pool of highly skilled tech workforce in India and giving the large Indian student community a head start on latest technologies like Machine Learning, Artificial Intelligence, and Mobile & Web Development, Google announced 'Developer Students Club' summit (DSC) in Goa.

The program is aimed at inspiring and training student ambassadors who will encourage students in their campuses to learn newer areas of technologies that will equip them with the right skill sets as they step out of colleges to join the workforce.

The inaugural batch will see 200 student ambassadors from 98 cities across 170 colleges in India, attend the three day Summit (Feb 23- Feb 25) and learn about various emerging technologies through a series of engaging sessions from experts from Google and industry, hands-on one-to-one mentoring activities, that will help the students to unlock their creative potential.
