Google has tried to improve its services and systems on a recurring and periodic basis. These are small improvements that transform them and integrate them with each other, making them better, simpler to use and even with new features.
That's what we saw last week with Google Lens, which now allows you to recognize and copy text from any object with your smartphone. Then you just have to carry it inside the PC. But how is this novelty used after all?
A new way to copy text from the real world
Google Lens has long given users a different view of the world. This app and service can look at any image or object and take text from there, recognizing it, translating it and making it available to the user.
In its latest version it also allows you to take that text and send it to any PC where the user's account has his active account. It is a simple and very useful process, for those who need to transpose a text from the real world to the virtual world.
It’s simple to use Google Lens in this case
To be able to accomplish this task, they only need to repeat what they normally do on Google Lens. We are talking about pointing the camera at the object that has the text and waiting for it to detect it. They must then choose which area they want and wait for the app to recognize it.
In the area associated with the search for the text, which appears automatically, the Copy to computer option must already be present. This is where they should load. The list of available devices will immediately appear and where Chrome is launched with the user's account.
Any object can offer text to the PC
They just have to choose the machine where they want to send the text they copied and wait. The Google Lens will show the progress of this action and at the end it will show a successful message of copying the text to the PC.
On the computer side you do not need to take any steps. A Chrome notification will appear showing that there is new text ready to be used by the user. This will be available in memory and ready to be used.
To finish, the user only has to take one step. Choose the application where you want to use the text you obtained from the object or the real world and make the copy process. You can use the well-known Ctrl + V or right-click and choose Paste.
Google had already paved the way to transport elements between Chrome from Android and the PC. Now take it a step further and take this functionality to other areas of your system. Finally, there is a simple way to transpose from the real world to the virtual world.
