Google Lens is a fantastic addition to Google Photos for Android and iOS, allowing your smartphone to recognize a number of things in your images, such as sights and contact information. With this feat you can even figure out how to buy just about any product you took a picture of-you do not even need the barcode.
If you've ever used Google Lens, this process is very similar to how you would use it. However, if you're new to Google Photos and Lens, you may be surprised what is hidden in it.
This Google Lens application is great for going through your photos and discovering (or rediscovering) products that you want to buy, or at least want to see how much it costs to buy. So, if you've ever taken a picture of something that you loved in a store but did not want to pay properly, then it's easy to get more information about the product after the fact.
: Find the photo (Or take a new one)
Google Photos does not just work with images you upload to Google's cloud. The app can also display all the photos in your default photo app (you need to give Google Photos permission) your gallery if it's your first time). This means that anything you record with your iPhone or Android phone can use Google Lens (if the image can be viewed by Google Photos).
If you do not have a product photo yet and want to test this feature, take a picture of an item you want to buy, be it in a store, with a friend or wherever … even in your own home if you just want to see what Lens can do.
If you have Google Photos open, find the photo of the product in one of your folders, and then tap it to view it. Next, press the Lens icon (the white dot in an incomplete square). Google will then scan your product and (hopefully) identify it. If this is the case, useful information should be displayed below. This information depends on how Lens recognizes the item
For example, there may be a brief description of the product with the "Search Results" option that will lead you to a Google search. The article in your browser
Often, instead the description "Quick Facts" a horizontal carousel with similar or similar items displayed. For example, when I used Lens at the front of Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wilds, it correctly recognized as the first result, though it also showed some other Legend of Zelda games as alternative results. If so, just tap the correct result to open a Google search in your browser.
From time to time, when Lens scans one of your photos, you get a general description for the company, rather than the product itself. If you click on "Search Results" or "Search Image on Google," you may find it even easier Find.
Sometimes it scans the text in the image itself if it is more eye-catching than the product itself. If so, tap Search when the info card pops up to open the search results in your browser.
If you can not determine what the product is, you'll get a warning "Hmm, I'm not sure yet." In that case, you can tap "Search Google Image" to open a browser in your browser perform reverse image search.
Step 3: View prices and even buy the product
Once you've entered the Google search results in your browser, you can either browse through the results until you find a store front to buy your product, or you type at the top of the Shopping tab. I recommend the latter because Google sums up the prices of countless sellers so you do not have to comb through the pages of Google search results to find the best deal. You may need to manually insert a keyword into the search results, especially if it is a search that Englisch: www.mjfriendship.de/en/index.php?op…39&Itemid=32 can be applied to many different things.
Sometimes it's up to the money and you do not have to adjust the search terms at all. The hard part is just deciding where to buy it!
If you've done a reverse image search, because If Lens was unable to identify the product immediately, you may be able to tap the All or Shopping tab to find what you are looking for. This does not always work, depending on which search terms Google has added to the image file, but it's worth it.
If a search was done based on the text selection, you probably need to adjust the search term a little to get valuable results – or get any results. For example, for the IKEA shelf below, I simply added a few spaces and removed the text "contact person".
As you can see, there are many ways that Google Lens can help you buy some of the products in your images. Once you get to the search results or the Shopping tab, all you have to do is select and checkout the right provider as you normally would (unless you're just checking prices).
