Locating a specific product via Google search is about to get easier thanks to the latest innovation related to Google Lens: the search engine allows you to use its service using images and text, both simultaneously. This way it is possible to upload a photo of a t-shirt, write “green” and Google returns the results with the product of that color.
Every second we gain in daily tasks involves the accumulation of a good part of the time at the end of the day; which adds up minute by minute until you get a good amount of time. For example, in searches, we can save effort by concatenating terms and using filters; succeed like this more accurate results to find what you want the first time
Improved search with image and text merging
Just as advanced search engine tools can refine queries to minimize results that aren’t close to what you’re looking for, Google Lens is starting to test the option of improve your image search by adding text to each request. Because yes, a picture is worth a thousand words, but the text helps too.
As Google specifies on its website, the Google Lens multi-search is beginning to reach mobiles, first in beta and in a localized way. From now on, and each time the search option is selected via Lens, it will be possible to add text to it in order to restrict the results as much as possible. The idea is use adjectives to define
Although multisearch started today, Google already introduced it at I/O 2021. The process to use it is as follows:
- Open the Google app (the widget, for example) and tap the Google Lens icon, the colored square.
- Go to the bottom menu of “Search”.
- Take a photo of what you want to locate or attach a photo from your gallery using the icon that appears to the left of the magnifying glass.
- When multiple search is available, a button appears “add to searchat the top, next to the thumbnail of the photo sent to Google Lens.
- Add any text to refine the search. Colors, directions, sizes… Anything to help you get more accurate results.
Multiple search is not yet available everywhere, but it’s only a matter of time: Google has launched the beta in the United States and, for now, in English. After the tests, it will land in the rest of the territories.
