Google made the Lookout app even more special, now users will get these new features

2877593 GoogleGoogle Lookout App:  Google has added several new accessibility features to its products and services on Global Accessibility Awareness Day earlier this week. In these updates, Google has upgraded its Lookout tool, designed specifically for people with low vision.

Now the LookOuch tool can use artificial intelligence (AI) to give users more information about the things around them. Along with this, this tool will now also help in finding specific things, such as chair, bathroom etc. Overall, this tool can find seven different types of things. 

How will the new update help?

Google is rolling out a new feature in Lookout in the beta version, which is called “Find Mode”. This feature will help users to find a specific thing. Users can choose any one of the seven types of things, such as a chair, table or bathroom. Then as soon as they move the camera around, Lookout will tell them the direction and distance of that thing. Apart from this, when you take a photo in the Lookout app, AI will automatically give the description of that photo. That is, users will know what is in the photo they have taken.

Google’s new accessibility features

The Look to Speak app for Android will now support a text-free mode. This means that users will be able to select pre-written or handwritten phrases without having to read anything with their eyes, and the device will read them out loud. This will be especially helpful for people with learning difficulties or who speak another language.

Google’s Project Gameface will now work on Android devices as well as computers. This tool will help people control the cursor of the device with their head and facial expressions. Developers will now be able to use it through GitHub. Businesses on Google Maps will now be able to mention in their profiles that they support Auracast-enabled Bluetooth devices. This will allow the sound coming from the broadcast device to be heard in a theater, auditorium or gym.
