Google Lens can now automatically translate screenshots

For smartphones operating Android 11 or above, Google Lens will now automatically convert texts in screenshots.

Users will now take a snapshot of a foreign language and have Google Lens translate it without any intermediary steps, according to 9To5Google.

For Android 11 smartphones, the exciting new functionality is available in the Google Lens Screenshot UI.

On the screenshot, the translate button will appear, and a click on it will easily detect and translate the necessary text.

According to GizmoChina, Google continues to release technologies that will help it retain its competitive advantage.

Users may also copy the text from the screenshot, which can then be copied for offline use or posted on the Google Translate application or social media sites such as Twitter or Instagram.

Users may also import the current language for offline use and submit the screenshot directly to the complete Google Translate app, according to the article.

Google Lens was first introduced at the 2017 Google I/O conference. Google Pixel 2 and Pixel 2XL were the first to introduce it.

It was merged with Google Photos for Pixels and other Android smartphones later in 2018.

In June 2018, the app was introduced to the Play Store as a standalone product and as of this year, it has already been downloaded over 500 million times.
