Google’s commitment to innovation shines through with expanding “Circle to Search” from Samsung to Google Pixel 8 and Pixel 8 Pro. This unique feature, rememberable of Google Lens, revolutionizes the search experience. By allowing users to search for images or text through simple gestures effortlessly, Google showcases its dedication to enhancing user interactions.
The collaboration with device manufacturers underscores a collective effort to bring cutting-edge technology to users, making the search process more intuitive and efficient.
How to Activate Circle to Search on Pixel Phones
To activate the feature on your Pixel phone, long-press the home button or navigation bar. The overlay pops up, allowing you to circle the image or text you want to search. This feature runs on the latest Tensor chip, meaning it’s available on Pixel 8 and Pixel 8 Pro, but not on older Pixel models or Pixel Fold.
