Over the last few years, Google has been perfecting and integrating many of its applications. Its keyboard for Android, Gboard, is a good example, and it has become the best option we have in this operating system. Another application that is getting more and more traction is Google Lens, which allows us to interact with the real world.
Google Lens is renewed: new interface and will help you with your homework
Google Lens is going to get a new tabbed interface and new features to help you solve math problems.
I myself have recommended its use in the last weeks quite broadly given that It is the best tool to scan QR codes in restaurants without installing any application..
Now both applications are integrated into one of the keyboard options giving more possibilities when copying text from the real world to our mobile.
Integrating Google Lens into Gboard
With the latest update of the Google keyboard, a new adjustment has appeared that allows us to launch Google Lens directly from it.
For this we have to open the keyboard, click on the icon of the three ellipsis that appears in the upper right part of it and select the Google Lens icon.
When we do, the camera interface will open and we can use any of its options. If we choose the text option, the system will scan what it sees on the screen and we will be able to select what we want.
Once this is done we have an option called Send to keyboard that allows us to copy that text in the application in which we were writing.
If you think that this is one of those options that you are going to use a lot, you can drag the Google Lens icon to the top of the keyboard so that it stays there permanently and we do not have to search the settings every time we want to use this app. .
