San Francisco – Google is reportedly now bringing Lens to the desktop web inside Google Photos for convenient text copying through optical character recognition (OCR).
Besides being its own app, Google Lens is also available in Image Search, Photos and integrated across Android.
Opening an image with words reveals a “Copy text from image” suggestion chip that features the (old) Lens logo and dismiss button. It appears to the left of Share, Edit, Info and other controls for Google Photos, reports 9To5Google.
Tapping launches Google Lens with the same analysis animation of pulsating dots appearing over the picture for a brief second, the report said.
Afterward, all text in an image is selected by default and everything appears in the right panel, it added.
