You Can Now Copy paste Your Handwritten Notes To Computer With Google Lens

Google Lens’ multipurpose object recognition tool is finally all ready to show off its new magic and the latest addition in the list of its abilities now includes the liberty for users to copy your handwritten notes through the app and paste it in the computer. The only requirement to make this all possible is that you must have a neat handwriting, so that the AI can process it.

If this news has got you pretty excited then you can check out the latest feature by installing the new version of Google Chrome and Google Lens app on Android or the Google app on iOS (as you can access Lens by clicking the button next to the search bar). Moreover, you should also make sure that you’re logged into the same Google account on both of the devices.

How does It work?

Pretty simple, fortunately! Point your camera at any hand-written text, once captured highlight the text that you want to copy and go paste it in any document on Google Docs that you might be working on.

With initial tests, we have figured out that the feature, for now, is kind of a hit or miss one. You can get the problem of types if you don’t write neatly. Nevertheless, it feels like a cool feature that can help so many students and employees currently working from home to bring their writing stuff in order.

Going beyond the copy-paste feature, Google has also introduced a pronunciation tool in Lens. All you have to do is highlight the word and tap onto the new “Listen” button to hear the correct pronunciation of any word. This is still strictly for Android users.

Google Lens also allows you to look up for complete concepts even if you want to know about terms like “gravitational waves” - that is if you really trust the Google search results. It’s another feature that can help students a great deal in preparing for topics to be tested in school or doing their homework.

Ever since it first got introduced, Google has been aiming to make the Lens app a visual search tool that can identify anything in front of you at all times. With a number of additions that have now recently become a part of the app, one can be sure of the fact that the updates are definitely taking Lens in the right direction.
