Chinese smartphone maker OnePlus joined hands with Google last month to push out Android P Developer Preview updates to its brand new OnePlus 6 smartphone, and with the latest Developer Preview 2 for the OnePlus 6, the company finally brought Google Lens integration into the default OnePlus camera app. However, if you’re not one to wait, and you want the Google Lens integration in the camera app on your OnePlus smartphone without the developer preview, well we’ve got your back. Here’s how you can get Google Lens in your OnePlus camera right now.
