Developers are excited to have Android Mobile Vision API support back , which was introduced almost an year ago but later removed for some reason.

The update also includes fix for the existing download issue.
Android Mobile Vision APIs
The Face API makes it easy to find and track human faces in images and video streams , which can even track positions of facial landmarks. The API can be leveraged to obtain information about the state of facial features like – Is the subject smiling? Are their eyes open?
The **Barcode API **helps to scan barcodes in real time in any orientation which is capable of detecting multiple barcodes at once.
The Text API allows text recognition in any Latin based language from any orientation. With its ability to preserve the structure of the recognised text , including photographs and lines, the API can easily automate the tedious process of data entry such as credit card information.
