Chrome to get its own screenshot tool, Google Lens support on Windows

Chrome screenshot tool update

Google has now started working on its own screenshot tool for
Chrome browser on Windows, macOS, Linux and ChromeOS. In
addition to the screenshot tool, Google also plans to offer
support for Google Lens, allowing users to quickly reverse
search images from the browser’s context menu.

Google’s screenshot tool is included in Chrome’s new share menu
and it will make it easier for users to capture quick
screenshots from web pages, similar to Web Captures of
Microsoft Edge. According to the Chromium repository, Google
began working on a native screenshot tool for Chrome this year.

Similar to Microsoft Edge, Google Chrome’s screenshot will open
a selection tool that allows you to capture content in your
browser. At the moment, it’s not clear if you can also scroll
down and capture the entire webpage, but it’s likely that this
feature will be included in the final version.

The screenshot will be saved to your clipboard automatically,
according to the Chromium patch published earlier today. On
Windows 10, you can use cloud clipboard feature to store
multiple screenshots and sycn them across multiple devices.

You can also download the image, share it or open an editor to
make changes to the screenshot.

Google Lens integration in Chrome

On mobile, there are a number of ways to get to Google Lens.
For desktop users, Google is working to add a new option to the
context menu to reverse search images using Google Lens.

Currently, Chrome’s context menu includes “Search Google for
this image” and it is powered by Google.com Images’ reverse
search capabilities.

Chrome Lens

Google is now replacing Google Images integration with “Search
image with Google Lens” in Chrome for desktop, allowing users
to search the image with Google Lens.

In order to test out these new features, you’ll first need to
download the Canary build of Google Chrome. Chrome Lens will be
enabled by default, but you’ll need to play with the Chromium
flags menu to turn on the desktop sharing hub and screenshot
tool.

Once you’ve installed the build, you need to navigate to the
browser’s flags menu and enable flags for “Desktop sharing
hub”. This will add a sharing hub to the address bar.

For the screenshots tool, you need to enable another flag
“#sharing-desktop-screenshots”.

The screenshot tool is currently not working and it is likely
that the feature will be enabled in the coming builds.

In addition to new features, Google and Microsoft are also
working on
performance improvements for Chrome on Windows.
