Snapchat's new AR camera can identify the world around you

We got an exclusive look at a big upgrade to Snapchat’s camera called Scan. Like a visual search engine, it scans what you’re looking at to identify things like breeds of dogs, similar clothes, plants, and AR effects to try.

    The point at 2:00 makes Snapchat scan seem like a competitor for google lens: use the massive userbase on Snapchat for AI database, get users to use or contribute more lenses for future work, and make the app more compelling. I think It has potential in a year, but man, it's got work to do. I'm sticking with google lens for the next few months.

    Google Lens!??? How is this noteworthy if Google has had this for years? And to think Snap is trying to compete with Google's endless resources. Who is signing off on these ideas 🤔

    • Zenith Quasar

      Zenith Quasar

      24 दिवसांपूर्वी

      @RJeezy I don’t care about originality. Not every tech idea needs to be original! Is everything Google doing original? No. But they add their own flavour or sometimes they just offer things to quash the competition (look up almost every social media implementing ‘stories’ which was a main Snapchat feature). Copying a product or service is not a problem. But defending a billion dollar corp that leech off and profit from your data as if they should rightfully own everything is pretty silly! You are not telling me anything new, but just because “every tech company” does something A. Doesn’t make it okay, B. Still doesn’t address my core problem with your original post: why should anything be in the monopoly of anyone?!

    • RJeezy

      RJeezy

      24 दिवसांपूर्वी

      @Zenith Quasar then brother you should buy a plot of land in a remote area, off the grid, because every technology company collects data on their users whether you believe it or not. Snap hasn't innovated in any other way aside from taking ideas from other companies and implementing them in their own unoriginal bland way!

    • Zenith Quasar

      Zenith Quasar
