At its Search On event, Google debuted a beta version of the Google Lens Multisearch tool. And while it’s still a US-only beta, it’s now available in the Google app for iOS and Android. Google Lens Multisearch is a new tool that allows users to describe what they’re looking for using a picture. You may now combine text and photos in a single search query with the new search option.
For example, you find a bottle you like but would prefer in green rather than the yellow color it displays. After that, you may upload the image and tell Google to look for a “green.”
While the feature was designed with shopping in mind at first, it is not confined to that. Belinda Zeng, Google Search’s product manager, and Lou Wang, the company’s search director, both believe it can do a lot more. “Imagine you have something broken in front of you. And, you don’t know how to explain it but want to mend it… you can just Google ‘how to fix,'” Wang says.

In fact, according to Zeng, it may already work with some broken bicycles. Zeng learned about manicure style by capturing a snapshot of gorgeous nails on Instagram. Then she searched for “instruction” on Google. Then she obtained video results that she wouldn’t have gotten otherwise.
The new feature is described by Google as “an altogether new way to search.” The new tool, according to the corporation, is part of an effort to urge consumers to “move beyond the search box and ask questions about what you see.” “We want to help people organically understand issues,” Wang adds, revealing how multi-search will expand to include more videos, images in general, and even the types of responses you’d find in a standard Google text search.
Updates to Google’s artificial intelligence are likely to fuel the new feature. People will be able to find what they’re seeking more easily, according to the firm. Google’s latest initiative, Multisearch, aims to make search more flexible and less reliant on words on a screen. A search engine for images has been available from Google for quite some time.
Google’s Multisearch Tool
Google’s latest initiative, Multisearch, aims to make search more flexible and less reliant on words on a screen. Google has had an image search engine for a long time. In the future, “MUM,” or Multitask Unified Model is a new technology. Google claims that it will make searching more easier, and could improve the feature. Google is expecting that AI models will usher in a new era of search. However, there are many unanswered issues about whether context — rather than just text — will be enough to get it there. This experiment appears to be too narrow (it doesn’t even use its most recent MUM AI models) to provide us with an answer. However, it appears to be a clever method that, if made a standard Google Search feature, might lead to some fascinating results.
However, just as your voice assistant doesn’t function with everything, it won’t work with everything. According to The Verge, the reason behind this is that there are an endless number of conceivable demands, which the tech giant is still attempting to figure out. Should the system prioritize your image or text search if they appear to be in conflict? That is an excellent question. For the time being, you do have one more option: if you want to match a pattern, such as the leafy notebook, go up near to it so Lens doesn’t see it’s a notebook. Because, remember, Google Lens is attempting to detect your image; if it believes you want additional notebooks, you may need to tell it that you don’t.
For the time being, the Google Lens Multisearch function is only accessible in beta. And, it can be found in both the iOS and Android versions of the app, but only for users in the United States. In Google’s mobile app, touch the camera icon on the right side of the search bar to bring up Google Lens and find multi searches. You can capture or upload a photo, then tap a small bar with a plus symbol and the phrase “add to your search” to add it to your search. This allows you to type words to better express yourself.
