YouTube has a lot of content, and you need a better way to search on it, right? What if you could use Google Lens to search on YouTube? It will be a rather interesting approach to search for content on the world’s largest video streaming platform since you no longer have to stick to words and rather search for what you see. Well, I am certainly not making this up so read along to know more.

Now you can search for YouTube videos on Google Lens

Turns out Google is testing out Google Lens for YouTube which lets you point your camera at a subject and viola, it will run regular plus video search on it.

Available to a limited number of Android users, this experimental feature lets you cut the chase of searching for content manually and rather let the camera do the talking. 

On Google Lens, you should see a ‘Search’ tab wherein it will show you all the results relevant to the subject in the viewfinder. Of course, it won’t be just video content but rather it will run as usual Google Search on Lens but will include relevant videos as well.

It remains to be seen just how Google can pull this off given the monstrosity of content YouTube offers and how Google Lens will be able to decipher what the subject is and how to search about it.

For now, the feature is limited to a small percentage of Android users. If you aren’t seeing this feature on your device, don’t worry as neither millions of others will get this feature until Google rolls it out widely. Also, there’s no way to opt in to use this feature as it is limited to a certain subset of Android users. 

In addition to that, YouTube is adding an AI-generated green screen called ‘Dream Screen’ that lets you create virtual backgrounds in Shorts using AI. It is also working on an efficient comment sorting system among others.
