New York (The Verge) — Google Lens can now copy and paste handwritten notes to your computer theverge.com/2020/5/7/21250….
Google has added a handful of new features to its AR-powered Google Lens tool, including a new function that lets you copy and paste handwritten notes from your mobile device to your computer. It’s handy if you’re surrounded by endless to-do lists and notes to self.
In order to use the new feature, you need to have the latest version of Google Chrome as well as the standalone Google Lens app on Android or the Google app on iOS (where Lens can be accessed through a button next to the search bar). You’ll also need to be logged in to the same Google account on both devices.
That done, simply point your camera at any handwritten text, highlight it on-screen, and select copy. You can then go to any document in Google Docs, hit Edit, and then Paste to paste the text. And voila — or, viola, depending on your handwriting. — James Vincent/@verge
