Gboard is picking up a neat camera trick that lets you ‘Scan Text’

What you need to know

  • Google is starting to roll out Gboard’s “Scan Text” feature to users, which feels a lot like Google Lens.
  • Users can launch the mode and snap a photo of something with text, and Gboard will attempt to copy it onto their phone for easy pasting into messages and more.
  • “Scan Text” was previously spotted in a Gboard beta and showed that the photo isn’t saved on your device; it simply exists for the moment before disappearing.

Google’s Gboard is reportedly rolling out a new feature to users that brings some camera work to their keyboards.

As spotted by Mishaal Rahman, Gboard has received a new “Scan Text” feature that piggybacks off a user’s camera. Interacting with the feature will open your camera, taking up a little more than half of your display. A button will appear centered at the bottom with an accompanying tagline that says, “take a photo of words to scan.”
