Google Photos

Google Photos recently decided to incorporate Google Lens into the app, which makes it now easy to recognize the text of the documents we've uploaded on the platform.

To do this, simply search for an image that has text inside it. If there is a lot of text, Google Photos will detect it automatically, without having to do anything, and invite us to copy the text to the clipboard, as you can see in the image above.

Once the option is selected, you'll have the possibility to select everything you want to copy, as if it were plain text in an editor, and paste it wherever you want, because being on the clipboard you can take it to external editors or messaging programs.

If there is little text and Google photos do not offer the option as soon as you open the document, you'll have to click on the Google Lens icon at the bottom to start the desired recognition.

The system is private, the text it recognizes is not saved on its servers, so you can even recognize bank account numbers without problems since you will not be able to filter information that they do not have.

This way, if you want to recognize the text of a document, you can take a photo, save it to Google Photos, and recognize the text later, although you can also use an online ocr like.

This feature is not yet available to all users, but it is already starting to be seen among some people, both for iOS and Android. The case is that Google Lens also made some changes to integrate the feature directly into Google Search and Camera, so it is clear that it has become a true protagonist of the mobile world.
