Google Chrome is Priming Lens for Desktop Search Results

Google’s mainstay these days involves finding ways to incorporate itself into virtually every single aspect of its customers lives because of the fact that this is the sort of thing that could potentially end up allowing it to stay relevant no matter what else ends up happening in the future. With all of that having been said and now out of the way, it is important to note that Google Lens, the company’s image recognition neural network, has been a big part of this push, and Google is trying to bring Lens to the desktop instead of just having it be a part of its undeniably popular browser.

There have been reports that Google is priming Lens for desktop use. It turns out that a big part of this involves opening Lens in a sidebar whenever someone makes a search. Google is not new to sidebars. In fact, the tech giant often uses sidebars to try and increase the number of locations from where its services can be availed. Reading lists were an important type of sidebar that Google brought out which ended up being quite popular with all things having been considered and taken into account, and it seems that Google Lens is going to be following the same route.

It makes a lot of sense that Google would want to bring Lens to the desktop. The search engine giant has frequently been trying to make it so that all of the precious clicks that a user can offer would be made on Google’s own pages and that the user would spend the majority of their time on these pages. A good example of this can be seen with questions being answered on the search results page thereby preventing you from having to open a site. This Google Lens experiment is similar to that in quite a few ways.
