What you need to know

  • Google Lens for desktop Chrome has gained a new set of features that bring some of its best mobile features to your computer.
  • The image recognition tech now lets you copy texts on an image or translate them.
  • It is available on Chrome 100 for Chrome OS, Windows, and macOS.

Google Lens is now a lot more useful on Chrome’s desktop version, thanks to a new update that bolsters its functionality on the web.

The new capabilities expand on a Lens-powered reverse image search option that arrived on desktop Chrome last year. That feature allows you to right-click a picture and choose to “search image with Google Lens.”
