 Butwal, Google Lens is part of Google Photos that helps you visually search for images. On Android, Google Lens has become a more prominent part of photos by identifying which photos benefit from analytics and search tools.

Today, the lens is activated by opening the photo and selecting the appropriate icon in the bottom bar. It appears next to the Share, Edit, and Delete actions.

Google is currently making lenses available in the information sheet that appears when you swipe up on an image. Below the date / time there is a new “Search in this photo” section. Cleverly, this card will only appear if Google finds the lens useful, that is, if the image or screenshot contains text. Therefore, the photo is analyzed quickly the moment you pull up the seat. This feature does not initially work to recognize the monument with a simple test.

There is a small thumbnail with the “Select text in image” and “Google Lens” prompts. The four options are copy, search, listen, and translate text. Tap any of them to immediately activate the lens in that mode.

Google Lens is very useful for Optical Character Recognition (OCR) and can save you a lot of time. However, most people do not know that it is available. Today’s addition is a step towards increasing its attention.

This enhanced availability of Google Lens in Photo for Android has been widely deployed (via Android Police) in the latest version of the application (5.33). Not yet visible in iOS client. The iOS client hasn’t been updated since December and there are no new views optimized for tablets.
