Last week we met the new Samsung family at Unpacked 2024, the Galaxy S24 which come in three versions as usual from the popular Korean manufacturer. The event was marked, as it could not be otherwise, by the devices, but on this occasion, software has become much more important: Artificial Intelligence arrives with functions and features notable, payment in the future.

One of these is ‘Circle to Search’ or ‘Circle to Search’ in the language of Shakespeare. The good thing is that not only Galaxy S24 owners will be able to use it, but will soon arrive on other Android phones. What is this feature from Google and Samsung? What Android phones will receive it? That is what we are going to elucidate in this article.

‘Circle to search’: this is how it works and compatible devices

After testing the aforementioned function on a Samsung Galaxy S24, we have concluded that looks a lot like to a possibility that has existed for years, usable from any Android mobile with Google Lens. And it is based on image recognition, to search for anything that has entered our eyes.

Be that as it may, it is a characteristic that shows the capabilities of generative AI, and although it is similar to what Lens achieves, it does not reach the level of depth of this one. Now, if you’re wondering how ‘Circle to search’ works, we’ll summarize it for you: with a simple circular gesture that surrounds an element of an image, a search will start.

It seems simple, and it is, although its operation entails some quite striking quality: It is capable of analyzing the content surrounded by the user, recognizing objects, monuments, or any element present in the image. Do you want to find a monument in a friend’s photo on Instagram? Surround it. Do you want to know where to buy a t-shirt that you have seen online? Surround it.

This is the main claim of Google’s AI function, in partnership with Samsung. Of course, this collaboration, apart from praising what the Korean manufacturer’s new Exynos is capable of, will not be exclusive to the latest Galaxy. It has been confirmed Compatibility with the following Android phones:

  • Pixel 8
  • Pixel 8 Pro
  • Samsung Galaxy S24
  • Samsung Galaxy S24+
  • Samsung Galaxy S24 Ultra

It will not be exclusive to Samsung and Google. It will reach other Android manufacturers

This short list is just the beginning: Google has already confirmed which will soon reach other smartphones with its operating system. And with others, it means that It will also be outside the Galaxy and Pixel. On the other hand, we don’t know how long we should wait to use it on a Xiaomi, OnePlus or Oppo, but at least we have confirmation that this will be the case.

Could be in a future update Google Lensor even take advantage of the noise of the next version of Google’s OS, Android 15, to launch it to the whole world. In short, the rest of mortals we must continue waiting to try it and get the most out of it.

We will be waiting for any news related to the new Artificial Intelligence functions of the Mountain View company. Not only ‘Circle to Search‘has highlighted: Multisearch It seems like a pretty important change in the generative search experience.
