Google Lens app gets two new features

Google Lens to get new filters this week applicable for Android and iOS users

First on the list, Lens has a new tool for you to use the next time you go out for dinner. Some new features for Dining and Translate are added to the Google Lens.

Google announced this dining and translation filters earlier in May at the Google I/O conference. These new filters are rolling out to all users but Android phone owners should note that it will only work for them if they're phone is ARCore-compatible.

Although this feature has previously been available on Google Translate for a selection of languages, the lens can now detect over 100, with the translated text conveniently displayed right on top of the original wording.

It will also bring you information and photos of that food. When you tap on the dish, you can see pictures of it and people's reviews from Google Maps. Finally, when the check arrives, you can point Lens at the receipt, and it will automatically be able to calculate the tip and split the bill, if needed. For example, phone numbers on business cards, gift card codes, WiFi passwords, etc.

Last but not least, Google Lens is making it a little easier to buy products you see in the real world.

Rounding out this update for Lens, you can now point your camera at things like clothes, furniture and more, to see similar things that you can pick up.

Auto provides search results based on whatever object a user is pointing the camera at. The new filters will be available by accessing Lens in the Google Assistant, Google Photos and Google search apps. Especially if the menu is in a language that you are unfamiliar with - or uses some fancy words that you may not know what they mean. The Google Lens will convert the writing in the image into text and it will display on your smartphone.
