At a recent Paris showcase, Google announced a new Google Lens update that is coming to Android mobile devices. “In the coming months, Google will allow anyone using Lens on Android to search anything on screen. As Google said during the presentation: “If you can see it, you can search for it”.
Users could search for a building name, cooking recipes, car models, or any image that might contain searchable information. It will also work on websites and apps, and you won’t need to leave the screen to search Lens.
At the same event, Google announced an update to its Multisearch feature: which allows users to search for images and add text to narrow search results. You can now add text to specify the types of results you’re looking for with an image.
In the Tweet above, Google demonstrates that you can search for images and further refine results by using Lens, then adding text search, specifying a different style.
At the same event, Google also unveiled Bard, its rival ChatGPT that will soon be featured in search. Just this week, Microsoft also announced its AI-powered improvements for Bing and Edge browsers.
