Google announced the public beta of its Cloud Vision API on Thursday. The announcement marks the public availability of the Google Cloud Vision service -- which basically unfolds intelligent image analysis tools for app developers -- after its short limited preview launched in 2015.
The Google Cloud Vision service gives app developers a new mechanism for creating intelligent apps which use images. With the help of the service, developers can conveniently enhance their apps with built-in image recognition and classification features.
The Cloud Vision service allows app developers to manipulate images in a number of ways. The developers can, for instance, run optical character recognition for pulling text out of images, or use the technology which powers Google’s SafeSearch feature for detection of inapt images.
Google has revealed that, during Cloud Vision’s public beta period, the users of the service will be able to send a maximum of 20 million images per month.
The pricing details of the Cloud Vision service have also been divulged by Google. The company has said that app developers will be able to run up to 1,000 images via Google services for free. Thereafter, a flat fee will be charged for each group of 1,000 images uploaded by the developers. Google has also revealed that developers will get discounts for sending huge volumes of images through Cloud Vision service.
