Google Lens for desktop on chrome has been updated with new features. It has been updated to include features like contextual translations, optical character recognition (OCR), and more. The update, which is available to Chrome on macOS, Windows, and Chrome OS introduces a more advanced Google Lens.
According to report, the update is being rolled out widely for those on Chrome version 100. The latest version of Google Lens on Chrome has a bottom bar with three buttons — Search, Text, and Translation. Users can select one of the options to execute the respective action. The company has also added a Find image source top button to search Google for visually similar photos.
With the new OCR tool, users can select, copy, listen to, and do more with text detected on a photo. Translation, on the other hand, functions just like the camera feature of the Google Translate mobile app. It translates the text on the actual photo to help users fully understand the context of a certain phrase. Users can optionally open the page on the Google Translate page, as well.
