Google Chrome for Desktop Gets Google Lens Search Tool

by Tushar

Google rolled out its AI-Powered image recognition service – Google Lens to Android smartphones way back in 2017. Until today, Google’s AI-powered image recognition service is limited only to mobile phones.

Earlier this year, Google expanded its Google Lens service to Google Photos on desktop. However, an AI-powered image recognition service only allowed users to extract text from the images via Google Photos.

However, now it looks like Google is preparing to bring the Google Lens visual search tool to the Chrome browser. According to the reports from 9to5Google, the latest version of Google Chrome for PC now shows a new ‘Search Image with Google Lens’ option.

The option appears on the right-click menu of the Google Chrome web browser. When users perform an image search with the new Google Lens integration, they are redirected to lens.google.com/search page. The landing page shows relevant images with your uploaded image shown on the left side.

According to the report from 9to5Google, the new Google Lens feature is a part of Google Chrome version 92. However, the feature is rolling out via a server-side switch, and it wasn’t live for everyone.

If you are using Google Chrome 92, you need to right-click on any image and find the ‘Search image with Google Lens’ option. If the feature is not available, you would need to wait for a few more days or weeks.
