In June, we activated a Google Lens redesign inspired by Google Camera. It is now available for some users of the Google app beta on Android.
This revamp specifically eliminates the large icon carousel for accessing the various filters of the visual search tool. Instead, you get a redesign of Lens’s interface that is inspired by the Google Camera app. This is evidenced by an edge-to-edge full-screen appearance that features rounded viewfinder corners.
Like on Pixel phones, the filter selector is now located at the bottom of the screen with the modes directly named. You can swipe left / right to switch, with the icon appearing above in the search button. This change is crucial as Lens adds more functionality. The previous approach required you to be aware of each icon.
Google has also moved the import button that opens your gallery to the left of the shutter. It was previously in the top right corner, which now houses only the overflow menu, while the flash is at the other end. Depending on the mode, the viewfinder has different framing guides.
From a functionality standpoint, not much has changed. Regardless of the new user interface, “Homework”
The broader renewal now sees a more limited availability. Not all users of the Google app beta have redesigned Lens’s camera, but it’s enabled on one account for us on multiple devices.
