The Google Lens app is used to recognize objects using the camera and helps you quickly find the necessary information about what your smartphone "sees". With the next update, the Google app has received several useful features that can expand the list of features of Android smartphones.
The new version of Lens not only copies the scanned text to the smartphone's clipboard but can also send it to a PC with the latest Chrome browser installed. To do this, both devices must be registered in the same Google account.
In addition, users no longer need to open a separate app to find the meaning of a word or phrase. Now, after selecting the text in Google Lens, you can swipe up the Google search tab and immediately get the information you need.
The updated version of the app also allows you to listen to any scanned foreign text. With the help of this function, the user can hear the correct pronunciation of unfamiliar words.
According to Google, the new features are already available to Android users, and the release date for the iOS version of the app will be announced later.
