When Google Lens was first announced a year ago, many pointed out its similarities to the long-abandoned Google Goggles app. Both were designed to identify objects in pictures, but Lens is far smarter thanks to a healthy dose of machine learning.
Google Goggles just received its first update since 2014, which replaces the entire app with a "Hello, Google Lens!" message. It asks users to install the new standalone Lens app, and that's it.
It seems strange that Google would direct users to install Lens - there can't be very many people left with this app installed. Also, Lens only works with a dozen or so devices at the moment, none of which are phones from 2014.
