LABEL_DETECTION model upgrade

The LABEL_DETECTION model will undergo an upgrade over the next 90 days to a newer version. The API interface and client library will be the same as with the previous version. The API follows the same Service Level Agreement.

Please note that you have 30 days from today to test the new model by specifying "builtin/latest" in the model field of the Feature object while requesting image annotation. At the end of that period, it will be promoted to the default model accessible as "builtin/stable". After that event, the original model will still be available for another 60 days using "builtin/legacy".

If you encounter problems with this upgrade, please contact Vision API engineering team by submitting a ticket in the private issue tracker.

OCR legacy model access extension

Based on customer feedback, we have decided to extend support of the legacy TEXT_DETECTION and DOCUMENT_TEXT_DETECTION models. These legacy models are accessed by specifying "builtin/legacy_20190601" in the model of a Feature object.

These models will now be accessible until November 15, 2020 (6 months from launch date) to give customers more time to adapt and migrate to the new model.

See the May 15, 2020 release note for the original update announcement.

June 04, 2020

Access Transparency GA

Access Transparency logging is now Generally Available. If you want to enable Access Transparency logs, see Enabling Access Transparency.

OCR model upgrades

Note: As per the June 11, 2020 release note, the legacy models are accessible through November 15, 2020.

The TEXT_DETECTION and DOCUMENT_TEXT_DETECTION models have been upgraded to newer versions. The API interface and client library will be the same as previous version. The API follows the same Service Level Agreement.

The legacy models can still be accessed until June 30, 2020. Specify "builtin/legacy_20190601" in the model field of a Feature object to get the old model results. After June 30, 2020 the old models will not longer be offered.

For more information, see the product documentation.

CMEK compliance

Vision API is now compliant with customer-managed encryption keys (CMEK). To learn more, vist the CMEK compliance page. Please note that Product Search is not CMEK compliant at this time.

February 24, 2020

SafeSearch Detection update

The SafeSearch model has been upgraded to a newer version. The API interface and client library will be the same as previous version. The API follows the same Service Level Agreement.

For more information, see the product documentation.

February 19, 2020

Cloud Vision API will not return gendered labels such as 'man' and 'woman' after February 19, 2020

Detecting labels in an image containing humans will result in non-gendered label such as 'person' being returned. Our prior approach was to return gendered terms, like 'man' or 'woman'.

Given that a person's gender cannot be inferred by appearance, we have decided to remove these labels in order to align with the Artificial Intelligence Principles at Google, specifically Principle #2: Avoid creating or reinforcing unfair bias.

Regional endpoints available for OCR

The Vision API now offers multi-regional support (us and eu) for the OCR feature.

Using a multi-region endpoint enables you to configure the Vision API to store and perform machine learning (OCR) on your data in the United States or European Union.

October 30, 2019

Beta feature

The following beta features are available in API version v1p4beta1:

September 12, 2019

OCR regional support

August 16, 2019

Spring framework integration

If you write your applications in Java with the Spring Framework, we now provide a guide to help you add Spring Cloud Vision API to your application. Spring Cloud Vision can make it easier and more efficient to work with Cloud Vision.

June 07, 2019

General Availability (GA) release. Support for online small batch file annotation has been released as GA. For more information, see Online small batch file annotation.

General Availability (GA) release. Support for offline batch image annotation has been released as GA. For more information, see Offline batch image annotation.

Model updates

Improved detection models are now available for the following features:

Specify "builtin/latest" in the model field of a Feature object to use the new models.

We'll support both the current model and the new model the next 90 days. After 90 days the current detection models will be deprecated and only the new detection models will be used for all logo, landmark, and crop hint detection requests.

Languages update

More languages (with associated languageHint codes) have been added to the list of languages supported by TEXT_DETECTION and DOCUMENT_TEXT_DETECTION. Experimentally supported languages and mapped languages lists have also been added.

May 13, 2019

OCR Model Updates

An improved OCR model is now the default for Text detection (OCR).

April 10, 2019

Beta features

The following beta features are available in API version v1p4beta1:

  • Online small batch file annotation. Performs synchronous image detection and annotation for a batch of files (currently "application/pdf", "image/tiff" and "image/gif"). The API will extract at most 5 frames (gif) or pages (pdf or tiff) of your choosing from each file provided and perform detection and annotation for each image extracted. Learn more.
  • Offline batch image annotation. Allows users to call any Cloud Vision API feature type on a batch of images and perform asynchronous image detection and annotation on the list of images. Learn more.
