Google Lens announced a new update that allows copy the text of your handwritten notes and then send them to the computer. This feature consists of focusing the text on the Lens camera, selecting it and using the “Copy to my computer” option. Later you can paste it from an open window in Chrome on your laptop or desktop computer.

If you feel a kind of déjà vu it is not strange. A similar option was already present, although it only allowed sending the text to the mobile.
The possibility of copying our notes directly to the computer searches boost productivity. The new feature was announced by Lou Wang, Lens product manager, who revealed other options that are integrated into the company’s recognition system.
