Google Image Search Gets More Interactive With Lens Integration

Google today announced that Google Images users can now access Lens directly without needing to have a device that comes with Google Lens.

When inside of an Image Search on mobile, you'll see the Google Lens logo in the bottom right.

The introduction of Lens for Google image searches follows on Pixel 3 smartphones, as well as Google Photos and Google Assistant on Android smartphones. It'll work on numerous same things as the Lens feature in Google Assistant, but of course it will also help you buy things.

The feature is now only available to those searching in English, but will soon be rolled out to other countries and languages, the company said. These dots can be tapped to identify the information Google Lens has associated with it. Now, Google Images will show you related information and images regarding the particular piece of furniture you saw.
