Google has rolled out a new feature that will help you search online using text and images at the same time.
On Thursday, the company rolled out a new feature called multisearch that will make allow Android or iOS users to search for things that might be hard to explain.
The way it works is:
- Open up the Google app on Android or iOS
- Tap the Lens camera icon, and either search one of your screenshots or snap a photo
- Then, swipe up and tap the "+ Add to your search" button to add text
Examples Google provides include searching with a photo of a dress and adding "green" to find it in the color you want, taking a picture of your dining set and adding "coffee table" to find one that matches what you already have, and snapping a picture of your rosemary plant and adding "care instructions"
Currently, it's only available in the U.S. as a beta feature in English and is best used for shopping-related searches.
No word yet on when it will be released in other languages and countries.
