Google Lookout uses AI to help visually-impaired people navigate the world

Google's Lookout app says what it sees for blind users in the US

You can download Lookout to your own Pixel phone by following the link below. Well, the app is now officially available to install and explore by the users of Google's Pixel Smartphone users. Users can open Lookout, select one of the three modes, and lookout will detect nearby objects, people, and text as they move through a space.

Lookout helps people in situations where they might need to ask for assistance, including learning about a space for the first time, reading text, and completing daily routines like cleaning, cooking, and shopping.

Though Lookout is only available in the United States on Pixel devices set to English, Google "hope [s] to bring Lookout to more devices, countries and platforms soon". Because of this, they are looking for feedback from users, so if you have some after using the app, send it here.

The developers were working hard to improve the functionality and the overall user interface of this app since it was announced last year during the I/O conference last year.

Google noted, however, that Lookout is still a new technology and "will not always be 100 percent perfect". Well, the Lookout app is now official, at least for some.

Google Lookout is now available for the Google Pixels smartphones, and only within the US. 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.

Google have said that the app is not ideal of course and are encouraging feedback about times when Lookout does or doesn't work well.

Although it will only work on Pixel devices in the USA at the moment Google are hoping to bring it to more devices, countries and platforms soon. Share your thoughts in the comment box below and also stay tuned to PhoneRadar for more such interesting updates.
