Google photos, which is one of the famous gallery apps available for Android, has got a handy new feature up its sleeve.

A new update has been pushed to Google apps, which allows the user to copy text from the images of documents or screenshots by using optical character recognition (OCR).

A lot of people use their smartphone cameras to take photos of documents and other objects that contain text. Google is now able to recognize text in a photo and give you the option to copy it.

It now also allows you to search for something in the photos containing the text would appear.

The search feature in Google photos is already pretty powerful.

It can recognize objects, like toys, bikes, whether it’s a party scene, a birthday scene, if there is a cake present, are animals like dog and cats.

Having the ability to know what text a photo has, it makes it super easy for users to search for the right a document in Google photos.

How to use Google photos for copying text from an image?

The process of using Google photos for copying text from images is pretty simple.

Launch the Google Photos on your Android mobile and navigate to the desired image.

Then tap on the Google lens icon, highlight the desired text you wish to copy, choose copy from the options.

Then you will be able to paste it anywhere, such as in a WhatsApp chat, send an email message, or in a notepad.

Apart from the new feature of introducing OCR, Google has added a few new features lately. These are as follows.

Dark mode in Google photos

These days everything is turning dark, Google almost has a dozen apps which have got the dark mode feature, and now it’s Google Photos with a Dark Mode. The feature was added in June 2019.

Auto crop for documents

The new auto-cropping feature in Google Photos on Android determines when you are viewing a photo of a document, and suggests you whether the picture requires cropping, rotating, or brightening the image, for a little better clarity.

All the changes are done on the image with a tap of a button.

Express backup

A couple of months ago, Google also brought a new backup option for Google photos. It’s called Express backup.

The express backup provides faster backup at a reduced resolution making it is easier for people with a slow internet connection to backup all their photos.

The reduced resolution isn’t too bad if the uses should only be looking at the photos on the mobile phone.

Now the users have got three options to back up their photos.

In original quality, which gives them 15 GB of free storage in Google,

The other option offers unlimited storage where the quality is reduced a little.

And the third one is Express backup which reduces the size of photos to around 1 MB for them to upload quickly.

Apart from these, there are many other exciting features Google photos offer which you can read about in detail here.
