    In my old Pixel 2 day I was always able to analyse a picture with Google lense. This option is gone ... How can analyse a taken picture now?

    Tap on any picture in your camera roll. At the bottom, the Lens icon is second from the right.

    If you are in the viewfinder of the camera, you can click on the screen where you want to "scan" the item and it will try and pick it up.

    You're saying you aren't seeing that Lens icon below whenever you select a picture from your camera roll?

    Are you running a beta version? Is your app updated? Are you on a pixel 3?

    it's missing in my pixel 3. it's really strange as Google lense is working in the camera app as well in the assistant. I tried to reinstall the photo and Google app but there is no change. really weird as I see to be the only one with this problem.

    Have you tried uninstalling Google photos and then running the update again?

    Just curious - the picture that you happened to show the information for looks like it's from a series using the Top Shot feature. Are all of the pictures that you've taken using this option? Perhaps that has something to do with why the Google Lens option isn't shown?

    I am equally confused. Do you normally have 'Motion' turned on? I've tested it both ways and can't reproduce your problem but I also don't have a Pixel 3, so I don't have the Top Shot feature so I can't check that combination.
    I'm assuming that your OS is set to Deutsche for locale and language?

    As an FYI... while in the camera app you can long press the viewfinder and it launches lens as well.

    it's solved. I just received an update for the photo app and now it's there. maybe a bug in the German version!?
