Google is rolling out text search for pictures in Google Photos. So, it’s possible to find specific snaps. However, it has its limitations. For instance, it seems to only function on ordinary photos, like a picture of a sign or book page.

But, it’s got the power to use Google Lens and people can even copy-and-paste. Having access to Google Lens means things in foreign languages can be translated
