Google recently introduced Google Lens, which analyzes what you see and gives you results in real time. It will tell you what the image is or give you links to help you understand it better.

There are several ways to stop Google Lens from working. Lens may not work as it should and identify objects in the images, or it may not even start and show the user some kind of error message instead – or half a dozen other things. In addition, there’s another cause for any lens function not working.

With this technology, you can do the following (as shown on the Google PlayStore page and works for images from your Google Photos):

Try deleting the data from the application.

If you access Google Lens from Google Photos, you can do this through Settings (for the operating system, not the application) > Programs > Google Photos > Memory, and then Delete Data. Deleting the data will essentially be a new installation, the only thing that will be lost will be your settings, not the actual data.

Make sure that Google Lens App is installed on your device

Google Lens has a dedicated application on the Android operating system, and it is only when this application has been downloaded that most Android devices will be able to use Lens in real time. If the application is not installed on your Android device, you will not be able to see the Google Lens icon in the Google Wizard. If the problem is that the Google Lens icon doesn’t appear anywhere in the Google Wizard, go to the Google Play store and download the Google Lens application.

Once the application is installed, launch Google Lens Wizard by tapping and holding the Home button and then tapping the compass icon in the lower right corner of the screen. The Google Lens icon should now appear next to the microphone icon on the Explorer page.
