Google Photos: Finding and Copying Image Texts

Google Photos is one of the top apps for storing photos and videos. In addition to the familiar features such as cloud storage and automatic synchronization with the smartphone, the program has gained a new feature that allows you to find and copy texts from images saved on the device.

This function is possible thanks to the integration of Google Lens OCR (Character Recognition) technology with Google Photos. With this, I don't have to manually search for a photo to activate Lens and recognize the text. Now, just search for a word or phrase and the app lists all the photos with that content. When the searched image is found, simply press the Lens button to copy the text and paste it elsewhere.

Let's learn the walkthrough to use this new feature?
