Google Lens is adding a new feature to detect skin problems with just a photo.

A dynamic that follows the same modality that we already know, and we apply with the rest of the Lens functions when we want it to search for something from our environment on the internet.

Google Lens helps identify skin problems

Google Lens has many functions that allow us to use the app on a daily basis for almost anything. Whether it is searching the internet for items that we find in our environment, translating, exploring nearby sites or helping us with homework, among many other actions.

And now it adds a new function related to health, thanks to the potential of AI, as mentioned by the Google team. Of course, we always have to turn to a professional or specialist when it comes to health, since it is the only way to receive a proper diagnosis and treatment.

But if you are one of those who go to Google first when they want to find out about a possible health problem, you can take into account the alternative that Lens offers you. Specifically, it can help you detect skin conditions.

How to use the new Google Lens feature

So simply by focusing your camera on the area of ​​skin you want to see, or by uploading a photo, Lens will show you visual matches, prioritizing results by relevance and similarity, which could give you a clue as to what might be affecting your skin.

Following that dynamic, you can check on Google Lens about a rash, a mole, a blister, etc. With each image that is shown in the results, a web link is included so that you can expand the information.

Although it can work as a quick consultation for a temporary skin condition, it is always advisable to go to a specialist to diagnose, explain the causes and have an appropriate treatment.

Google Lens will integrate with Bard

Another novelty of Lens has to do with its integration with Bard in a future update:

In the coming weeks, you’ll be able to include images in Bard’s prompts, and Lens will work behind the scenes to help Bard understand what’s being displayed.

This integration opens up a range of possibilities…from asking for advice on a purchase based on a photograph to creating content from photos, among many other options.
