A new feature has been introduced by Google that allows users to search on the internet using text and images at the same time.
The new feature, Multisearch, has been added to Google Lens, which gives the user a different way to search and find what they are looking for.
This tool is developed for searching for things that might not be straightforward as searching for a singular image or a phrase.
If you want to search more about an object in front of you but are not sure about how to describe what you’re looking for, that’s where Multisearch will come in handy.
Using the multi-search feature in Lens, you can ask Google questions about what you want to search. Google’s advancements in AI have made this possible.
Let’s look at the instructions on how to use Google Multisearch and what you will be able to do with it.

You can ask Google a question about an object in front of you and use text to clarify your search by colour, brand, or visual quality.
Google gives a few examples of the kinds of use cases Multisearch is developed for:
- You can take a screenshot of a stylish orange dress and add the text “green” to find it in another colour
