Google Lens comes to Assistant on Pixel phones

  Google Lens comes to Assistant on Pixel phones Point your camera at the world and get answers.The feature isn't widely available yet -- it may take some time before you see it. There's also no word on availability for other devices. It's safe to say this will make Lens more convenient, though, regardless of what you're using. Before, you had to snap a shot and then switch to Photos to make sense of it. Assistant skips that step -- you can capture an image and decipher it in one go.

After a long wait, Google has finally done the right thing. We're talking, of course, about fixing its burger emoji illustration so that the cheese is on top of the patty, like it should be.

We’re not sure how this one slipped through QA in the first place, but we’re happy to see it finally got fixed . Google also took the time to update the beer, beers, and cheese emoji as well. I mean, who puts lettuce on the bottom of their burger ?

We're talking, of course, about fixing its burger emoji illustration so that the cheese is on top of the patty, like it should be. Granted, that may seem like a very small thing to worry about, but people were so salty over the mis-drawing that Google CEO Sundar Pichai promised to "drop everything and address" it this past October 28th. The change comes along with a few other emoji fixes in the Android 8.1 developer preview, which is available now.

In addition to righting the cheese placement-wrong, the new beta also contains updated emojis for "Beer" and "Beers," filling up the steins so that the frothy head makes much more sense. The "Cheese" emoji gets a more three-dimensional look as well, which should please fans of fromage the world over. As Emojipedia notes, this is of course a beta update, which means that the changes may not be final (though we surely hope the burger stays fixed for all our sakes).
