One of Google’s impressive tools, the Multi-search which was introduced earlier this year will now be expanding to more than 70 global languages

The tool enables users to conduct searches using both an image and some text using google lens, another of Google’s innovations which have been used to answer over 8 billion queries monthly.

With the Multi-search, a user is able to switch colours when using an image to conduct a search.

This covers clothing, home decor and other issues of interest.

It can also be used to search for food items. Users can upload the particular food and the app would link them up with any restaurant that sells that particular food item.

These new features according to Kola-Ogunlade, explains Google’s development as it has gone beyond translating text, to translating pictures.

With major advancements in machine learning, Google has so far, translated text into images over one billion times monthly in more than 100 languages.

A lot more people will now be able to use the Multi-search option as Google has made it available in many more languages
