There are some people that are naturally good in picking up new languages easily while some don’t have that talent. So for those who don’t, there’s a new features Google added to Lens to help you out. The app can help you practice your pronunciation â€“ just scan some text with the camera and hit â€œListenâ€. This works with single words and even full paragraphs.
There are sometimes we encounter things we donâ€™t understand, even if they are in plain English or the language you understand best. Now you can select a word or concept and do a Google search with a single tap. As usual, this brings up helpful results from Wikipedia and other sites, videos too.
If youâ€™re the type to take handwritten notes, you can easily transfer them to your computer. Google Lens has been able to do handwriting recognition for a while now, but the new version lets you â€œcopy to computerâ€, which will transfer the text from your phone to any signed-in Chrome browser you have open.
The new features are now available in the Google Lens app for Android. The iOS version will have to wait a bit for the Listen function, but the other two features are available now.
