Google's Lookout app is finally
The app also has a camera view for live recognition.
Since announcing the app a year ago, Google said it has been "testing and improving the quality" of the app's results. Well, the app is now officially available to install and explore by the users of Google's Pixel Smartphone users.
The company cautions, as, with all new technology, the app will not always be "100% flawless", but is urging early users to review the product so that Google can continue to improve the functionalities of the app.
Google, which announced Lookout a year ago, designed the app to provide more independence to roughly 253 million people worldwide who are blind or visually impaired.
Product Manager, Google Accessibility Engineering, Patrick Clary stated, "We designed Lookout to work in situations where people might typically have to ask for help-like learning about a new space for the first time, reading text and documents, and completing daily routines such as cooking, cleaning and shopping".
"As with any new technology, Lookout will not always be 100 percent flawless", Clary said. The app, which works similar to Google Lens' technology, lets people search and take action on nearby objects by pointing their smartphones.

Think of it as a specialized application of Google Lens, one that identifies real-world objects but also plays it out loud for the user to hear.
For what it's worth, Google's "hope" is that availability will be expanded "soon" to "more devices, countries, and platforms", although there are no words on a timetable of any sort. Because of this, they are looking for feedback from users, so if you have some after using the app, send it here.
The app has been made available exclusively for Google's Pixel users in the United States by Google. Or the user should keep it on the front side of his shirt's pocket or coat's pocket so the camera app can see the things around.

Jurgen Klopp: Liverpool are back where we belong
Maybe we were trying to play defensive and trying to score goals and maybe that was wrong and today Liverpool were better. The second half I was really happy by how mature the performance was, how strong we looked, how good we defended.
