Although Google Lens was not used as much as Google originally planned, the company is still rolling out the services in more Google products. The company is also expanding its functionality on various platforms. According to 9To5Google, Google Lens for desktop just got a few more useful features. These features are really useful and they bring desktop functionality closer to what you see on a phone.
These features make Google Lens for Desktop much more useful
If you didn’t already know, you can use Google Lens on your computer. If you’re using Google Chrome, you can right-click on an image and actually open a Google Lens page. You will see the option ‘Search image with Google Lens’. Doing so will open a special page with some search options.
Now Google has added some more features to Google Lens for desktop that will make it much more useful. When you open the page, you will see some buttons at the bottom of the image. These are Search, Text and Translate. If you click Search, you will see images similar to the one you are looking for.
When you click Translate, a simple translate user interface opens on the right side of the screen. When you translate, the translation appears on the actual image. If you want a more complete translation experience, you can click the “Open in Translate” button at the top. That will open Google Translate in a new tab.
The Text button will automatically highlight all detected text on the screen. From there you can copy the text. When you select a section of text, you will see a Google search for the text on the right side of the screen.
Last but not least, you also have the option to find the source of the image. You use this if you have an image, but you want to know from which site it comes. These new features should now be available in Google Lens for desktop. If not, you may want to wait for it to reach your area.
