Google today announced a new feature called ‘Screen Search’ that will make it easier for users to look for specific information on their mobile screens. The company today said that in the coming months, Google Search users will be able to use Lens to “search your screen” on Android globally.
“With this technology, you can search what you see in photos or videos across the websites and apps you know and love, like messaging and video apps — without having to leave the app or experience,” the company wrote in a blog post.
Google Search users can long-press the power or home button on their Android smartphones (which invokes the Google Assistant) and then tap “search screen” option to use this functionality.
Multi-search goes global
Google had introduced multi-search functionality in Search back in April 2022. For the unversed, multi-search enables users to search in text and images both at the same time. However, at the time of launch, Google Search’s multi-search functionality was available as a beta feature in English in the US only.
Today, the tech giant announced that it is taking Search’s multi-search feature out of beta mode and rolling it out to users across the globe. “Today, multisearch is available globally on mobile, in all languages and countries where Lens is available,” Google added in the post announcing the news.
Multi-search gets smarter
Multi-search is already a more efficient way of searching for information on the internet. Recently, the company improved this functionality by adding the ability to search locally. This functionality is currently available in English in the US. Today the company said that in the coming months, it will make this feature available globally.
Lastly, the company announced that in the coming months, users will be able to use multi-search globally on any image that they see on the search results page on mobile.
