How do I search an image from my gallery?

Answered by Stephen Mosley

To search for an image from your gallery, you can use the Google app on your Android phone. Here’s a step-by-step guide on how to do it:

1. Open the Google app on your Android phone. You can usually find it on your home screen or in your app drawer.

2. At the bottom of the Google app, tap on the “Discover” tab. This will take you to a page with a variety of content.

3. In the search bar at the top, tap on the Google Lens icon. This will launch the Google Lens feature, which allows you to search using images.

4. Now, you have two options to choose from. You can either take a photo using your phone’s camera or upload an image from your gallery. To take a photo, simply tap on the camera icon and follow the instructions to capture the image. If you want to upload an image from your gallery, tap on the gallery icon and select the image you want to use.

5. After you’ve taken or uploaded the image, Google Lens will analyze it and highlight different objects or areas within the image. You can adjust the selection area by dragging the borders to focus on a specific part of the image.

6. Once you’ve selected the area you want to search, scroll down to view the search results. Google will provide information related to the image, such as similar images, websites with related content, or even shopping options if applicable.

Keep in mind that the accuracy and relevance of the search results may vary depending on the image and the information available on the internet. It’s also worth noting that Google Lens works best with clear and recognizable images, so try to use high-quality photos for better results.

By using this method, you can easily search for images from your gallery using the Google app on your Android phone.
