Google Integrates Google Lens Into Chrome Image Search

Google Lens is now integrated with image search in Chrome and is available in all browser versions on Android, including Stable and Canary. We already knew that Lens was going to join Chrome because the code revealed in August indicated that Google was working on integration.

The code indicated that Google was working on adding a “Google Go Search” option to the pop-up menu that only appears when you tap and hold an image in the Chrome Android browser. Once you have activated the flag, you must restart the browser, after which you will notice a change in the pop-up that appears when you tap an image. The “Search this image in Google” prompt will be replaced by “Search with Google Lens.”

The use of Google Lens when searching for images will be useful because it will not look for just a replica, but will look for the elements it recognizes. This provides the user with a lot of similar images. According to the Android font, this feature is not enabled by default; To turn it on, you need to head to ‘chrome://flags’ and find ‘#context-menu-search-with-google-lens.’
