From images to videos, how AI is helping you search visually

If you can see it, you can search it

Cameras have become a powerful way to explore and understand the world around you. In fact, Lens is now used more than 10 billion times per month as people search what they see using their camera or images.

With Lens, we want to connect you to the world’s information, one visual at a time. You can already use Lens to search from your camera or photos, right from the Search bar. Now, we’re introducing a major update to help you search what’s on your mobile screen.

In the coming months, you’ll be able to use Lens to “search your screen” on Android globally. With this technology, you can search what you see in photos or videos across the websites and apps you know and love, like messaging and video apps — without having to leave the app or experience.
