Google Lens feature is now available on Google homepage

Google

Google Lens was first introduced as a Pixel-exclusive feature in 2017, and it was later made available to all Android and iOS devices via Google Photos a few months later, in 2018. Google has now added a Lens button to its home page’s famous search bar.

Google Lens homepage image search: Features

  • Google Lens attempts to provide information about what is in the image.
  • If you scan a picture of a product, you’ll get shopping results.
  • If you upload a picture of a plant or animal, Google will try to figure out what it is by comparing it to other pictures.

There are several other built-in features as well. You can copy and even translate text from an image if you scan it. Scanning a QR code will provide you with information about it. Google also gives you a link to do a reverse image search to find out where the image came from. 

This feature, an easy-to-access version of Lens, could become a very useful image multi-tool.

Rajan Patel, Vice President of Engineering, at Google commented on the announcement.

The google homepage doesn’t change often, but today it did. We’re always working to expand the kinds of questions you can ask and improving how we answer them. Now you can ask visual questions easily from your desktop.
