Seamless integration with the ability to run a reverse image search easily no matter where you store files, with only a right click. It's superior for online comparison shopping and locating specific items. You can even sub- search smaller parts within the image. My main complaint is that it seems to be updated for the purpose of mainly just shopping, whereas the ability to match faces consistently has somehow plummeted. Seems like the they took 3 steps forward and 4 steps back with this

I help translate Chinese, from English, and English - Chinese. Yet, twice already, the app translated 2/3 of text incorrectly, and the second time around, 1/4 of text incorrectly, and that is only for the months of January - July. It is understandable it incorrectly translated March as "to March", and May, as "possible", though there needs major improvements for context in translating text. Nonetheless, I won't give up on the app. Rather, I want to help Google improve upon such. Thanks.

It works great for informational purposes initially. It would get 5 stars if not for the fact that it stopped working halfway through exploring the topic in question and failed to load the other tabs for other facets of information, then got stuck and wouldn't let me go back to the previous tabs, or close the search results menu to return to lens. It then proceeded to have a seizure and freaked out when I tried to close it. 😅 So yeah it's a great app, works 95% of the time, but then doesn't.
