Google Photos made a recent update that especially forces Android users to enable text search on photos located on the device. Users have been praying for some sort of search tool that helps them quickly locate their specific photos, whose long serial designations or dates that nobody remembers. Now, this Optical Character Recognition, or OCR for short, can search for text within Google Photos and save users tons of time that they would otherwise spend rummaging through albums and folders.
This tool used the OCR technology radar, found in Google Lens, which can find any image that contains text within them. The lens can select and copy the desired content so you can paste it anywhere you want too. Finding text within screenshots can be an especially useful tool, since they usually contain obviously aligned words of important content for the user.
The best thing about this Google Photos optical character recognition technology is that it recognizes even distorted and non-standard fonts. The presentation of the project and its launch are taking place within this month. The service, of course, will vary according to the devices used. Google has not yet published the full spectrum of technology and its possibilities, as well as the way it handles metadata.
