Google starts implementing text search in Photos

23 August 2019
Also, the Lens feature allows for text to be highlighted and then copy-pasted.

why not implement option for foldering the image first?
its pain in the ass when all your images pour into one bowl with no ability to sorting out between each folder.

Anonymous, 23 Aug 2019Thank you based Google, now you can read the content of my photos too.Turn off internet & go to the cave.

google photo is 1 of the worst photo backup out there.

sure, he's worry free and get backup done perfectly, but it's a pain in the ass when u actually need to use it/find back some old stuff.

they purposely left out basic feature so that some user that have no habit of cleaning will end up no choice but to subscribe additional storage.

f google.

Maybe because it was not required by government agencies before, now with Mr Orange, they can ask your phone to analyze your own photos remotely and advise them if something they don't like is found... and without use their resources, cheaper and delated by your own phone.

And by the way Google will take advantage of doing business with that additional data from your photos, things you own and are a bit old to flood you with adds, complete your profile with detected preferences and things you own, etc, of course.

available in google drive for years. i wonder why it takes them so long to enable it in Photos

Literally spyware
