Recently you may have seen the science of Google lenses on TV, in which foreign words are translated with the help of a camera or an unknown object or place can be identified. But what to do when the need is on the computer. To avoid this problem, you can use the ‘reverse image search’ feature. With the help of this feature, you can also avoid copyright infringement. Let’s know about it.
Google dropped these apps last year when it launched Google Lens, an improved version of this technology. But this app was used only by users who had expensive Pixel phones.
But not now!
Google has started making its Lens app officially available on Android phones that have Google Photos installed on their phones.
This means that now through this app you will be able to scan things, get information like dog breed or flower type.
Google says batches of lenses are running out, so you may not get the update right away – sorry!
Reverse image search is an important service of Google and can only be used on the Chrome browser. For this, first type Google Image Search in the browser, then click on the camera option that appears on the right side in the search bar. After doing this, a new box will open at the bottom of the search bar box, in which you can paste the URL link of the photo.
What is Google Lens?
Google Lens is an app by Google, which scans photos taken with your phone’s camera, showing you all the information about it.
It is basically a type of real-time reverse image-lookup, or you can even say that it is an augmented augmented-reality (AR).
With the help of this app, you can learn more about them by scanning pictures ranging from flowers, vegetables to buildings.
So now you want to know more about the matter, take a photo of it and scan it with this Lens app. Bus! Information will be in front of you.
How to use Google lens?
If you are an Android user and your phone has Google Photo app, then you can use Google lens.
Of course, because the Google Photos app can’t actually snap photos on its own, first you need to take the object with your phone’s camera that you want to know more about.
After this Google’s photo app
Open Open this photo in the Google Photos app.
Tap on the Lens icon below.
Depending on how the app recognizes this object, it will provide you with a card that contains relevant information and, if applicable, there may be some links from which you can take additional information.
Google Lens can now also help you identify flowers, objects of nature and the food served in your plate. If you are traveling, you can scan pictures of historical buildings and get more information about them.
You can also do reverse image search n mobile. Using Google’s reverse image search feature is a bit tricky on the mobile version of Chrome, instead, you can use the Google Lens app. If you do not want to use the Google Lens app, open the Chrome browser on the phone. Next, click the option with three dots on the top right. After doing this, a new window will open, in which click on the desktop site. After this, search Google image in the browser, after that click on the camera icon in the search bar and check the truth of your photo yourself.
Not only that, but you can take a picture of the artwork as well as learn about its painter and even see restaurant reviews.
