When searching the internet on a phone, users are looking for an enhanced experience that allows them to dive deeper and learn more about products and images as they come across various articles and shopping sites. The current experience in some search apps involving a long hold on an image is very limited and may only give the option to save an image. This user interface brings the Lens experience to additional search apps in multiple operating systems. The Lens experience is triggered by an action on an image in the search app, and this helps to provide more of a discoverable proactive experience to the user.
