Google Launches Lookout App Helping Visually Challenged People Identify Surrounding Information
15 March, 2019, 04:55 | Author: Rafael Roberts
The app is developed with Artificial Intelligence to figure out the objects through the Smartphone's native camera app. By the way, Lookout was originally announced at the I/O conference back in May 2018, requiring a lot of time for "testing and improving the quality" of its results. Now, months later, the app has been rolled out for Pixel phone users in the US.
Apart from identifying the objects through the AI technology, the app is also capable enough to read the text, labels, scan barcodes and much more.
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.
The AI-powered app, which has been undergoing testing since it was originally announced in May 2018, is created to help blind and visually impaired people by identifying the objects around them.

Users only have to fire up the application once to use Lookout - they don't have to tap any other button in-app.
Google warns users that the app is likely to identify a few things or people incorrectly, as it is a new technology and essentially operates on AI guesses.
The app has been made available exclusively for Google's Pixel users in the United States by Google. For ease of use, Google suggested users to hang their Android device around their neck or place it in a shirt pocket with the camera facing forward. With the Lookoutapp, those with impaired vision will no longer have to play a guessing game or ask someone to help read crucial and maybe sensitive documents.
