Google has just released an update for its object recognition software, Google Lens. The AI-powered Camera Assistant is now able to copy and paste your handwritten notes or memos from a notebook to a computer. Here’s how to use it.
Did you know that you can use Google Lens to quickly copy and paste handwritten notes and documents to your phone?
With a new update, you can now copy and paste handwritten documents to your computer.
What You Need To Copy and Paste A Handwritten Document?
To start, you will need some software:
- The latest version of the Chrome browser for your computer.
- The latest version of the Google Lens application for your smartphone on Android or iOS.
- Sign in to the application and Chrome with the same account.
How To Copy And Paste Handwritten Text with Google Lens
Once you have configured everything and are connected to both devices, follow the steps below :
- Open the Google Lens application and select a handwritten note using your smartphone’s camera.
- Use the “Select text with the lens” function to point to the text you want to copy.
- Press “Copy to computer” to quickly paste it to another device connected with Chrome.
This function is useful for quickly copying handwritten notes and pasting them onto your computer.
Don’t Forget To Write Properly!
You must remember one very important thing. Google Lens works best when you write legibly.
Lens uses AI to determine what you have actually written, but the software is not meant to be a soothsayer.
If you suffer from particularly sloppy handwriting (like me!), chances are it won’t work.
