Tech Tip – Identify What Objects Are In Photos Using Google Lens

If you use the Google Photos app, you can take advantage of "Google Lens" to identify a picture and show Google search results about the object(s) featured in the photo, for example a type of animal, of a building, or a car you took a picture of.

Here is how it works: 

  • Open the Google Photo application on your phone (if running it for the first time, click on allow access to photos)
  • Open one of your saved photos from you camera roll
  • Click on the "Lens" button (it looks like a circle with three curved edges surrounding it and a dot in the fourth edge)
  • Lens will analyse your picture and search the web for results, which it will display under the image
