Google lens is one of the best multipurpose tools by Google that comes handy at many works. And now, to make it better and more productive, the tech giant has added a very useful feature to Google Lens, its multipurpose object recognition tool.
With this new feature, you can now copy and paste handwritten notes directly from your phone to your computer. However, it works best if the handwriting is neat enough.
To use this new feature, you need to have the latest version of the Google Lens app on Android or Google app on iOS with the latest version of the Chrome browser installed on both of your devices. When you meet the requirements, you need to be logged in with the same Google account on both the devices.
Once done, just point your camera at any handwritten text, highlight it on-screen, and select copy. You can then go to any document in Google Docs, hit Edit, and then Paste to paste the text. And boom, your handwritten text is now converted into digital text which you can save in any format.
We have also tested this feature with the latest version of Google Lens, the feature was pretty hit or miss. If you don’t write neatly, you’ll definitely get some typos. Still, this is a great feature that has good accuracy in analyzing the handwritten text.
Apart from this new feature, Google is also rolling out a pronunciation tool. Just highlight a word in Lens, and tap “Listen” to hear how it’s pronounced. However, this feature is currently only available on the Android version of Lens, but it will soon arrive on the iOS platform. You can also now look up concepts with Lens, searching for phrases like “gravitational waves” to get in-line Google search results.
