What does this do?
This allows you to scan real world text from paper publications, typed up notes and a computer screen into your Android in seconds.
Why should I care?
We often get tired of typing text into our little phone screens. You could eliminate the need to scan paragraphs of text into your phone and do it with little to no effort.
How to do this?
Go to the Google Play store and download Google Lens
Open Google lens and switch to a text mode
Tap the shutter button and wait until the entirety of the text is scanned
Once the text is outlined (this means your phone has recognized it), you could select the text and tap the copy button
Paste it to a text message or into a note app
