Google Photos have attained another level with their AI allowing users to now have more refined image results from a specified text search.
The new implement will give users the ability to search by objects in your images looking for specific colors, animals and face expressions. Now it’s learning a new trick – you can search text in your images. Not only that but it will also provide it to you in plain form for editing.
You spotted it! Starting this month, we’re rolling out the ability to search your photos by the text in them.
Once you find the photo you’re looking for, click the Lens button to easily copy and paste text. Take that, impossible wifi passwords 😏

The search-by-text feature also works on your desktop browser, but you can’t use Lens for obvious reasons. It is also struggling with wavy words and foreign symbols, so, for now, you should stick to printed letters and well-known fonts.
A quick experiment revealed that the Google engine can recognize a Nissan car on the streets, but cannot process an invitation with the word “Nissan” on it, so the service still needs time to be perfected.
