Google Lens is an OCR software integrated by Google in Pixel phones, which can recognize and extract text in images. Recently, Google has pushed an update to Pixel phones to enable the software to support the translation of screenshots of mobile phones.
According to a foreign media XDA report, when a user uses a Pixel phone to take a screenshot, if it detects that the picture contains a foreign language, the system will display a translation button at the bottom of the phone screen, and the user can click the button to perform the translation .

Naijatechnews understands that this function is not perfect either. Sometimes there is English in the picture and it will be translated into English, but the whole is available.
This feature has been introduced to Pixel phones equipped with Android 11.
