Bug in google lens intigration in camera app

2018-10-18, 19:28 PM

The google lens integration in camera app is good, but when you tap on image to copy the text, NO COPY or paste option shows up above highlighted text. Also it is not picking up things soo accurately. It can detect text easily but not the objects.

I cannot use the copy text or translate feature beacuse no option to choose such is available there.

Also the camera quality is degraded too much in the app. The image processing by stock camera app is very bad.

Rest the phone is ease.

Please fix these bugs asap.

Solved! See the solution

Hi.

 

I have been looking at this. I'm not sure how Google Lens is supposed to work, but it seems to me that Lens decides what options you are offered -- search, or share, etc. I can't find any way to tell it, no, I don't want to search this, I want to copy it.

 

It's not a fully-backed feature. I find it's very rare that Lens can fully identify something without an actual bar code, etc.

 

If you can provide some examples that would easy for us to reproduce, that would help. But again, I'm not sure this isn't just how it works.

 

- Matt

It's exactly as described above on a Motorola One, you can highlight the text but not do anything with it - apart from search internet. Google advertise that copy and paste text is part of Google Lens.

 

Can't try downloading the Google Lens App and testing, because it says "not compatible with phone".

The google lens is able to identify text easily in all phones, even in moto one power. But there exist a minor bug as i can select the text like ive shown in my screenshot of original post. 

Although there should be a copy option like its shown in the screenshot attached in this reply.

Please see the issie as it can be easily be resolved and also this feature is very important.

That's my experience too -- some of the timSometimesime it does offer copy, mostly it offers search, sometimes it offers share. I just don't think it's controllable by the user. Lens decides what to offer.

 

I have the same experience on my Z3 Play.

No my friend, actually if the app catches the text then it is able to copy. If it shows what text is selected then it shoild show the copy option. U can see that through google search or google lens site. Please see for the issue , also it is easily fixable if u try.

@RishabhBansal

Try using Google Translate to copy some text from a photo, after doing that on my Motorola One - I now get the copy text in Google Lens as well :-)

 

It's not ideal, but copy's text fine.

Hy Mark, Thanks for ur suggestion. It really worked.

Also if u r a tech guy u can help Matt forum manager(admin) to help soving this issue for future updates (android pie).

Cause in the end it is always good to solve every small issue so that it won't lead to another issue and make the OS as flawless as possible.

I attached a screenshot of how it looks like after it worked.

Again Thanks Mark.?

I like to think I'm a tech guy, but I'm not really. lol

 

Think this solution can be put down to a lucky find after using Google Translate to copy some text with the camera ?

 

It just a shame the copy box is on the selected text and not just above - where I think it should be?.
