Google Lens comes with new update of translating

Google Lens comes with new update of translating the screenshot. The feature came in the recent update of the Google app. According to 9to5Google, the feature could be available for only devices with Android 11. Unfortunately, this update won’t work with the Android version lower than 11. The new feature works simple. If you take a screenshot of an image then a pop-up will appear on Google Lens. The pop up will come within the Google Lens so you don’t need to take a further step of opening another app. Automatically,  Google Lens will translate the language in the screenshot after analyzing it. The translated language will appear in the exact position where the original text was located in the image.

After the text has been translated into the desired language, the user will have the option to copy that text for further use. The user can even use it for offline purposes and could also share the translated text on social media platforms including Facebook and Twitter. However, as a reminder to use this translating feature in offline mode, users will have to download the relevant language packs for Google Lens.

Moreover, Google Lens was first released on Google I/O 2017 platform. Google Lens is an image recognition tool that was first integrated with Google Assistant on the smartphone devices of Google including Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL. Later in 2018, Google Lens was integrated with Google Photos for both Pixels smartphones and other Android devices.  Google Lens was released on the Play Store in June 2018. As per today’s record, this app has now over 500 million downloads.

Conclusively, this new feature of translation is excellent as well as handy.  The translating tool takes accessibility to the next level.  Translating tool has only one con of not accessible in lower versions of Android. From now users can easily install the Google Lens app from Google Play Store and translate any desired language on the go.
