Google has introduced a new update for Google Lens that enhances the tool’s capabilities further. The update aims to improve productivity at work with the new features, especially while working from home. Read on to know about the new features.
Google Lens gets new features
Google, via a blog post, announced some new features that have started reaching users. The first one is the ability to copy text from paper and paste it on the PC you are working on.
You can already use Lens to quickly copy and paste text from paper notes and documents to your phone to save time. Now, when you select text with Lens, you can tap “copy to computer” to quickly paste it on another signed-in device with Chrome. This is great for quickly copying handwritten notes (if you write neatly!) and pasting it on your laptop without having to retype them all. Copying text to your computer requires the latest version of Chrome and for both devices are to be signed into the same Google account.
In addition to the ability to translate over 100 languages for you, Google Lens can now help you with the pronunciation too. You just have to scan the text with Google Lens, tap on the Listen button, and you will get the right pronunciation so that you can say the difficult foreign words with ease and learn a language by sitting at home.
Lastly, you can search for difficult words or phrases on a paper with the help of Google Lens. Yet again, scan the text via Google Lens, select the words you don’t know the meaning to, and the in-built Google Search will look for the meaning and more to get a better understanding.
Google Lens with the new features is available for both Android and iOS users, except for the Listen button that is currently available for Android users and will reach iOS users soon.
