In addition to the fact that the app can scan text and translate it, Google Lens is able to find and identify different objects, correctly identify and solve math problems, and recognize handwritten text in many languages…



The former name of the program is Google Lens, and it was published on Google Play in mid-2018. Since then, the popular app has been downloaded more than 500 million times in the Google Store alone.


Google Lens recognizes both objects and objects of the surrounding world and text (translated into the desired language from a rich selection list) in pictures and in a mode similar to augmented reality search.

The first demonstration of this software product took place at the Google I/O presentation in 2017. Then, shortly after the conference, the company integrated the app as a service in Google Assistant in the Android operating system for its smartphones (Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL).


Subsequently, in 2018, this service was integrated into the Google Photos block, and this time not only for Pixel smartphones, but also for other devices that run the Android operating system.

The development of the app after 2018 was the massive integration of various smartphone manufacturers in Google Lens into the camera app of their smartphones.


After this development and popularization of the application due to the demand of users and smartphone manufacturers, Google released the program as a separate component in its branded Google Play store.


The latest version of the application has added additional features for parallel operation, such as the ability to copy scan results, solve problems, and translate texts directly to the user’s computer.
