Updated Google Lens with smart text selection and real-time lookup features

Android Smart Text Selection Feature

As announced earlier Google lens will sport at least two additional features rolling out of Lens camera.

  • smart text selection,
  • style match and
  • real-time results

The App is redesigned that rearranges the Lens’ elements a bit, along with a brand new menu marked “Tap on objects and text,”. Now you can show you what objects the camera can identify. The smart text selection is most imaginative and useful. This feature gives you a way to quickly look up items in documents around you. You can simply point your camera at a menu, for instance, and tap on dish you don’t recognize to know more about it.

The Style match is a virtual shopping feature and offers unique AR shopping experiences. When you point your camera at an object, Lens will put a blue dot overlay on top of it, which you can click to display similar items you can buy. The real-time results overlay information on objects on the screen before you even press the shutter button.

The features are now incorporated on the OnePlus 6 smart phone. Yet Google has opted on a slow roll out rather. It is yet to make debut on the   Photo app’s Assistant yet. But soon that will be available on all Android phones.

If you are an Android lover you are lucky with Google Lens.

Among the features rolling out to Google Lens are some real-time AR capabilities. For instance you can point your camera to a popular landmark and instantly get information about it. Now the AR Shopping recognizes an object and shows you similar items you can buy.
