Google this week announced a new way to search for information on the phones, called Circle to Search. This feature allows users to select text or images on their screen and then get more information about it without having to switch to another app.
Google is launching Circle to Search on January 31, on select Android smartphones — the Pixel 8, Pixel 8 Pro and the new Samsung Galaxy S24 series.
To use Circle to Search, users need to long press the home button or navigation bar on the Android phone. Then, select the text or image you want to search for and Circle to Search will provide you with information about it.
