Google Lens is an image and text recognition application that uses Google Search to provide results based on what it sees in photos. You’ve probably seen the colorful camera icon in the Google search bar or in the Google app. It’s an understated shortcut that leads to an array of impressive abilities. This is Google Lens, and it’s a Google app you should know about.
Google Lens lets you do Google searches by simply pointing your camera at things. What he can do with what he sees is pretty amazing. Google Lens can tell you a lot more than just what you’re looking at. Got a math equation you can’t solve? Don’t worry about typing everything into your calculator – just point Google Lens at it. See some text in the real world that you don’t feel like typing manually? Take a photo and let Google Lens copy it for you. Find a strange bug in your yard that you’re not sure about? Google Lens can identify it for you. These are just some of the simple things you can do with Google Lens. It can also read real-world text aloud, translate text, search the web for an image you found, and tell you where to buy something you see in the world. It is very cool.
To use Google Lens on iPhone, iPad and Android, open the Google app and tap the colored camera icon on the right side of the search bar. On a desktop browser like Google Chrome or Microsoft Edge, you can use Lens by clicking the icon in the search bar at google.com.
