Thanks to him the company managed to teach branded smartphones to do portrait shots to wide angle, to light up footage in pitch darkness, and even to identify all the objects they see in front of you up to 100%. However, the latter function is not a regular feature on Google Pixel, and is available as a standalone app called Google Lookout.

Google has introduced a Lookout in the last year, but decided to release it only now. All this time, the company modified the application, trying to bring the level of recognition to perfection.

It is assumed that the Lookout will be kept in a state of activity, analyzing the material objects that would fall into the field of view of the users, if they hadn’t suffered from its violation. Therefore, Google recommends that you carry a smartphone running the app either on the neck in a pouch with suspension either in the front pocket of a shirt or t-shirt so that the camera lens was not blocked by a particle of matter.

At the moment to evaluate Lookout can only smartphone users line Google Pixel residing on the territory of the United States.
