Notwithstanding the big MUM update that allows you to pose inquiries about a photo, Google Lens is getting more unmistakable on iOS and in desktop Chrome.
In Chrome for Android today, long-pressing on a picture lets you “Search with Google Lens.” That will likewise be accessible in desktop Chrome when right-clicking. We originally detected this behind a testing flag in July, with the upcoming launch being somewhat more refined.
A “Search Part of the Page with Google Lens” button lets you “Drag over any image to search.” This takes into account more exact lookups that don’t default to the whole photo. In the demo at Search On 2021, this opens a right side panel of “Visual matches.” This capacity to see search results “without leaving the page you’re on” will likewise reach out to text.
In the mean time, Google Lens on iOS is essentially accessible through Search. It’s presently getting coordinated into the Google application’s built-in browser (for Discover and the search engine). The bottom bar will include a conspicuous “Search pictures” button that makes “all images on the page instantly searchable.”
Areas of interest are consequently featured with a tap launching the full Lens experience. This nearer Lens joining in Google Search for iOS is additionally coming “soon.”
These two features come as iOS 15 and macOS Monterey present Live Text and Visual Look Up. Google was first to Lens, yet is presently more noticeably surfacing on Apple’s platforms.
