Google Lens gained new powers! Now copy, translate and search photos on Chrome desktop

Your Google Lens experience will shift to desktop! Find out what’s new.

How have you been using Google Lens so far? To search for information about images? Before we go there, let’s clarify what Google Lens does? According to Google, “Google Lens lets you search what you see, get things done faster, and understand the world around you – using just your camera or a photo.” Well now Google Lens is more than just an image search. Not just on your smartphone, but also on the Google Chrome desktop. The latest version of Google Lens has been updated to do more than just search for images. A week ago, Google introduced Lens multi-search to allow users to ask questions about images on Android and iPhone devices. And now your Google Lens can do contextual translations, optical character recognition (OCR) and more on your Chrome desktop.

A report from 9to5Google says that the Google Lens results page now has tabs at the bottom of the screen after right-clicking on an image. Previously, the default tool was “Search”, but now it is marked by the “Text” filter, which has long been available on smartphones and Google Photos in the web version. You will need to click and drag to choose any text to copy, listen to, translate or search or “Select All”.

What’s New in Google Lens for Chrome Desktop

With the new update, the new Google Lens on Chrome desktop has a bottom bar with three options including ‘Search’, ‘Text’ and ‘Translation’. You can select any of these options as per your need. In addition, Google also added a Find Image Source button at the top to search Google to find photos similar to the one you searched for.

With the addition of the new OCR (Optical Character Recognition) tool, you can select text, copy it or even listen to it and do more of that with detected text in a photo. Previously, you had to upload an image to Google Photos. While the translation feature works just like the camera feature of the Google Translate mobile app. You can take a picture full of text and actually translate it to understand its full context and meaning. You can also open the page in Google Translate for a more complete experience. In addition to these, the “Find image source” shortcut will help you discover related images.

Well, it’s still unclear when these new updates will roll out to your Chrome browsers, but it’s now available in the latest version of Chrome for Windows, Mac, and Chrome OS devices.
