Now, let’s talk Circle to Search. It’s coming to the Pixel 8 soon.

This feature first saw the light of day on the Galaxy S24. But it’s not just for Samsung’s phones. Nope, this is a Google product. And it’s a pretty nifty one at that. It makes searching content in images a breeze.

Google Lens is a solid tool for analyzing images. Circle to Search? It just makes it even more user-friendly.

Say you spot an image on your screen you want to search. No need to head to the Google Lens tool. Just call up Google Assistant. Circle the item in the image you’re curious about. Google will zero in on it and do a Lens search. The whole shebang takes less than a second. Of course, your processor and internet connection might affect the speed.

For now, this feature is only for a select few phones. It’s coming with the Galaxy S24 phones. But it’s also hitting Google’s phones. Circle to Search is landing on the Pixel 8 phones on January 31st. That’s less than two weeks away.

Got the non-Pro model of the phone? Don’t sweat it. This AI feature isn’t just for the big guns. It looks like it’ll be available for both versions of the Pixel 8.
