    Didn't use to be there in the app list. After an update today it just popped up.
    I used to be able to get to it using Google app before.

    Not sure if I'm the only one who was missing the app

    Sounds like it's just being pre-loaded now.

    I tried to 'uninstall' ...
    The screen said 'update'
    It seems to be an embedded system app with no way to remove.

    I guess you can just use the "Disable" feature like for other pre-loaded (and any really) apps if you really want to make it inactive.

    Yes, just disable if you don't want to use it nor have it run.

    What does it do, and why would or wouldn't I want it enabled?

    It's a function you can use to allow Google to scan a particular photo you take in order to run a Google item recognition search on the items in the photo.

    It will come back with search results. Good for shopping or finding out more about a specific item which you don't know the name for.

    I disabled it on my device but only because I don't use Google Services.

    Thanks for answering the question for many of us
