Also, the dining-related features declared at Google I/0 2019 have finally arrived, allowing users divide the bill, watch a recipe in action, read testimonials by simply pointing the camera at an object on the menu, and also do far more.
The revamped version of Google Lens with the new dining and food related-features is allegedly accessible only for Pixel mobiles running the latest beta build of the Google app (v9.91), but it isn’t accessible widely to all users, 9to5Google accounts . The report adds that users running the hottest Google app beta is able to observe the revamped Google Lens from the Google Photos program too.
Starting with the changes arriving with the new variant of Google Lens, the slide-up menu for accessing programs like Copy Text and Scan Code has gone in favour of five circular on-screen screen buttons. The very first one is a translate button which can overlay the interpreted text from the consumer’s preferred language. The second button is text, which just like the older Copy Text feature, allows users to copy text written on a surface by simply pointing the camera in it.
The Auto button is for the vanilla picture recognition process, whereas the shopping button opens the mode where users may point at an item to confirm its availability on online sales platforms. The last one is the dining style (seen below) which includes features like the ability to emphasize popular dishes of a restaurant by pointing the camera on the menu.
Users will also have the ability to tap the dish to see what it looks in real life, while also letting them read testimonials of a specific delicacy. Google Lens will also let users split the invoice, calculate tips, and find a detailed animated guide on making a dish from pointing it on webpages in a magazine by a spouse book.
