Google already has prowess in terms of artificial intelligence and keeps adding more features and use cases to it almost daily. Apparently, Google is now integrating AI-powered Lens with Pixel smartphones in the screenshots tool as per the reports. Now, it isn’t something as we have already heard about it for some time now.
Apparently, Google is using Lens’ translate capabilities driven by AI on screenshots just after you have snagged it. AS per the leaked screenshots of the feature, you can spot a new option on the screenshot UI on the far-right-hand side. The option uses a Google Assistant icon. Once you click on it, Google will use Lens to translate the screenshot from language A to language B.
Google is adding an AI-driven Google Lens Translate Feature on Screenshots
For now, you can translate a screenshot to English or any other foreign language by going to the Gallery or Photos app. From there, you can open the screenshot and check out the Lens icon on top of the screen.
However, with the latest feature in place, users will no longer have to save the screenshot and go to the Photos/Gallery app. Rather, they will have an option in the screenshot UI itself. Tap on it and Lens will automatically translate all the translatable text using artificial intelligence. The feature automatically detects the scanned screenshot and translates it into English by default but you can change it as per your preference.
Users can also share the translation, copy the translated section, or redirect to the Google Translate service for further processing and usage. The new feature doesn’t just save time but also brings Google’s AI prowess to the forefront.
At the moment, this feature is a part of Google’s Device Personalized Services. This indicates that the update will not be able for all at once but it will be restricted to some users as of now. Also, this feature is available on Pixel devices running Android 11 and newer. The feature isn’t tried to any specific hardware requirements which means it could eventually arrive on non-Pixel devices too although the timeline isn’t known at the moment.
