Google Lens currently helps users search for stuff through pictures, which is quite handy if a user wants to know exactly what a type of plant is or what a statue is called. But that wouldn’t be all now as it’s getting new features to help users be more productive.
Henceforth, users will be able to use the notes copy/paste feature which will let users save text from paper documents to their phones or their computers. All that needs to be done is just tap “copy to computer” to paste the text on to any other device that’s signed in with Chrome.
Currently, the lens has the ability to help its users translate words into other languages when they point their camera at them. With the new update, it’ll help them learn how to pronounce them as well. Head on, select the text and tap the new “listen” button to have the word or phrase read out loud to your hearing.
The Google Lens can now help you figure out concepts that you don’t understand — in-line with Google search results, you can select words to learn more about them. Not sure what gravitational waves are? Tap the phrase and Lens will bring up relevant search results to explain.
No major changes were done though, but they’re certainly enough to make the Google Lens a more useful tool and provide an interesting way to kill time while you’re at home. The new features were actually made available today, except for the listen function, which is available on Android now and will be coming to iOS very soon.
