Currently, Google company is working on some features to bring to its upcoming Pixel phones, Google Assistant, and more. a new interesting feature which is called Smart Screenshots with Google Lens integration introduced with the latest Google app version 10.61 APK. by using this new feature, users will be able to search using screenshots via Google Lens. Google is also working on changing the pill-shaped Google Assistant suggestions that pop-up every time we trigger the voice assistant to make more suggestions accessible.
A Google app 10.61 APK teardown which is conducted by 9to5Google, recommends that a feature called Smart Screenshots is in the works. By taking a screenshot, users will have multiple buttons options that will pop up on the screen. A pen-shaped Edit button will let users open the toolbar for drawing and cropping over the screenshot.
Users can use a share button to share the screenshot to social channels, and a new ‘Lens’ button will let them search for objects inside the screenshot via Google Lens. It will let users do an optical character recognition (OCR), or find visually “similar items” in the screenshot.
There is also a fourth bottom that can show users the most used sharing social platform for quick sharing.
According to the report, it is still unclear if this functionality will expand to be system-wide and invokable anywhere
Or it will be limited to screenshots taken within Search. There is no word on when this feature will be available for testing or go live for all users.
The new design in Google Assistant suggestion pop-up was also moved to 9to5Google. Now when the Google Assistant is triggered, it will show pill-shaped suggestions at the bottom, with a maximum of two suggestions at one time in the Assistant UI. New Google Assistant suggestion pop-up will show circular suggestion placed on top of the UI, instead of the bottom in a newly designed version. Now, the small space required by the circular redesign will show up to four suggestions at a time on the screen.
According to the tipster, this feature may be in its early stage of experimentation as the listed suggestions don’t appear to change, regardless of location or time of day and still there is no word on when all users will be able to see this feature on their phone.
