Google’s ‘Smart Screenshot’ Might Soon Allow You To Search With Screenshots

Google is working its level best on one of its latest “Smart Screenshot” feature that will allow the users to search whatever they want on Google with the help of screenshots. 

The feature will be combined with the features of editing screenshots in a toolbar and Google Lens. 

You will be given the option to edit the screenshot in your own way and then you can share that screenshot on an app which will be the newly added feature of the Google Lens. 

The lens option is a very powerful tool that may help you to perform numerous tasks. You can perform optical character recognition, search, and find visually same pictures. You can even read barcodes, optical character recognition, read QR codes, etc. 

Certain leaks suggest that the feature of Google Lens will be combined with the “Edit & Share screenshots” option that will allow you to perform specific searches on the basis of screenshotted images. 

9to5google spotted the feature for the very first time who decompiled the APK file. This feature of the screenshot will be a part of the Google app 10.61 beta release. 

“When we decompile these files (called APKs, in the case of Android apps), we’re able to see various lines of code within that hint at possible future features. Keep in mind that Google may or may not ever ship these features, and our interpretation of what they are may be imperfect”- stated by the report of 9to5google when they decompiled the APK file. 

Now, the flexibility and the potential of the Google Lens will be easily proved by the introduction of this new feature. 

However, the report does not confirm whether the feature will be available while using the Google app only or it will be a system side feature.
