Google Photos is receiving a free upgrade not only for Android users

The new functionality is now available in Android and iOS versions of the Google Photos application. Google Photos is one of those programs that continues to thrive, but not everyone understands how you can make the most of it. To solve this, Google is developing one of the most valuable capabilities, the ability to identify and interact with text in photos using Google Lens technology, much more intelligent than ever before. Android Police discovered the update, which added new “chips” to the UI. New ones are “copy text,” “listen,” “seed,” and “mark,” which are small shortcuts that allow quick access to important tasks.

There is also a shortcut to Google Lenses, which creates, er, a shortcut to the existing Google Lens in the form of a large button marked LENS. That combination and the slightest hint of epicness on iOS suggests that new visual tweaks are also being tested: as the AP says, they have not appeared on public phones yet so it seems that Google engineers are also getting excited with soak.

If you can’t wait to see the tweaks in action, you will need to make sure you have the latest version of Google Photos from either the Google Play Store or Mirror apk, or from the Apple App Store if on the iPhone. And then it is a matter of checking the app from time to time to see if the feature is available to you yet. I really like the way it is applied to things like word recognition in photos, and in applications like Google Lens: something as simple as being able to call the number in a document is such a small victory of the technology that allows the load to be handled in many small ways on a daily basis.
