Google Lens Now Works on Google Images

Google Lens can now ID items in image search results

Google Lens is a feature that has image recognition to allow users get access to more information when the feature is used on their smartphones. Well, it is now here for some of us. For now, Lens in Images is only available on the mobile web for people in the USA searching in English, but Google plans to expand this feature to more countries, languages, and Google Images locations in the future. From today, users in the U.S. will see a new "Lens" button as an option under the image in their search results.

To me, this seems like one of those futuristics things.

How do I see Google Lens in image search? The way it is built into the Pixel 3 - this is all just so cool to me.

In a post on Google's blog, Product Manager for Google Images Assaf Broitman said you can, for example, search for living room decorating ideas.

Forum discussion at Twitter. From there, you can learn more about it, or find places where you might be able to buy a similar couch. After tapping on one of the dots or drawing a portion of the photo containing multiple dots, a Lens panel will start showing related images.

Although the new feature should be able to identify basic objects in photos, over time it should be able to identify more advanced things like specific types of flowers and noteworthy landmarks, she said.

"We launched Lens to help you do more with what you see".

The Lens icon can be found next to the share option underneath an image.
