Google I/O 2019 revealed a new feature for Google Lens, the company’s app-based image recognition software, which is also integrated directly into the cameras of Google Pixel devices. Now, Google Lens users can simply point their smartphone’s camera at a menu, and the AI automatically highlights the most popular dishes at the restaurant. If you select individual dishes, photos and reviews from Google Maps appear. Last, but not least, point your camera at the bill and Google Lens helps calculate a tip and / or split the bill.

“If you’re more interested in cooking food at home than eating out, then Google Lens can also help you with recipes in Bon Appétit magazine, where it will be able to add instructional videos to help you understand how to cook a dish,” reports The Verge.
