Google Lens Now Works With Image Searches On Mobile

A humorous but otherwise meaningless stock image of a man jumping Gratuitous images that have nothing to do with your content should be avoided

Google Images is getting a big upgrade that is based on artificial intelligence.

Currently, the Google Lens is only available in United States for searches in English, but users in other countries using other languages will soon get this feature too.

Lens in Google Images can also make it easier to find and buy things you like online. When you search for pictures on Google Images and open one, you can use Lens to get more information about the image. The Lens technology, derived from the company's various deep learning projects that teach computers to recognize objects in photos, can tell people what breed of dog their beloved pooch may be by scanning their pet photos.

In the last few days, Google announced a heap of changes to both Search and Google Images, including coming Lens integration.

Users will now see a small lens-shaped icon below the photos they chose to access from Google Images. "All you need to do is press the Lens button, then either tap on a dot on the couch, or draw around it, and Google Images will show you related information and images".

"You might come to Google Images looking for ideas to redecorate your living room", Google Images Product Manager Assaf Broitman wrote in a blog post. But who knows we might have other language versions in different other parts of the world soon.

Google Lens allowed you to copy text from a sign my phone's camera, identify plants and animals and can scan barcodes and get details on monument or building.
