Google's Lookout app aid blind people about environs

Google's Lookout app is designed to help blind and visually impaired users explore their surroundings
If you are living in the U.S. and using Google's own Pixel smartphone, then you can grab this app from the link mentioned below.
A screenshot image of Lookout's modes, including "Explore", "Shopping", and "Quick read", as well as a second screenshot of Lookout detecting a dog in the camera frame. Simply launch the app and keep it pointed forward and it will identify objects seen by the camera, which is then spoken out loud.
Lookout is primarily created to work in "situations where people might typically have to ask for help"; Google cites examples like "learning about a new space for the first time, reading text or documents" and daily tasks like "cooking, cleaning, and shopping". With the Lookoutapp, those with impaired vision will no longer have to play a guessing game or ask someone to help read crucial and maybe sensitive documents.
Google’s Lookout app comes in three modes Explore Shopping and Quick read
Users only have to fire up the application once to use Lookout - they don't have to tap any other button in-app. Once a mode is selected, the app detects what and where objects are in the real world.
Although it will only work on Pixel devices in the United States at the moment Google are hoping to bring it to more devices, countries and platforms soon.
Google recommends wearing your Pixel device on a lanyard around your neck or keeping it in your front shirt pocket. We're guessing it will all depend on how the app is received by Pixel 1, 2, and 3 users, whose feedback is specifically requested.
Note: The Pixel device should be updated to the Android 8.0 Oreo Operating System as the app is compatible with Android 8.0 Oreo or the above version of Google. Share your thoughts in the comment box below and also stay tuned to PhoneRadar for more such interesting updates.
