AR translate for Google Lens

Google Lens has so far offered support for translations. “With Lens, we have already gone beyond translating text to translating pictures,” Google said in its blog post and noted that users translate text in images over one billion times across more than 100 languages using Google.

In addition, Google has added functional shortcuts to its iOS app under the search bar.

The company has optimised its machine learning to blend translated text into complex images in 100 milliseconds. The technology uses generative adversarial networks — GAN models — the technology behind Magic Eraser on Pixel. The improved experience is launching later this year, Google said.
