Hi Chris…..Just read page 85 of your wonderful photos book where it says if I take a picture of a business card and use Google Lens, it will read the text and offer to save it all as a contact.  I can’t find that option.  It scans the card and gives an option to “copy text”.  Then it says “text copied”.  Copied to where?  I get an option to save to computer also but no where do I find where it offers to save as a contact.  ….. and I don’t know where it “copied to”.  Help?

Hey Sue,

I don’t think it actually displays the words “add to contacts”, but it displays a button with a contact icon next to the name of the person. Tap on that and you’ll see the contact form.

When you copy text, it just copies it to the clipboard, then you need to go somewhere and paste it.

Hope that helps.
