    Hey all,

    I was trying to show off my phone today, and I was extremely embarrassed. The Bixby vision option would not recognize any text in photos, and was a waste of time and totally embarrassing. It would get a fee characters correct, and the rest was nonsense. The original pixel blew it away easily - tested on the she receipt.

    I hope it is just a software glitch.

    Here's the photo that it couldn't handle on at capacity..

    Is anybody having problems with text recognition through Bixby on your phone?-20180927_181404.jpg

    In your gallery, there's a Bixby vision icon you can tap (or from a live photo view)

    Yes... Like that.

    Did you use Bixby Vision on the screenshot? Or did you use the text extraction tool from the s pen? Also, can you tray that with the photo I have on my Original post? Thanks!

    Awesome.... Now, I just wish it would recognize the address and have a link to maps. The location button won't register I'm Bixby for me. The Pixel does it automagically

    It's basically Samsung's version of Google Lens... It's extracts info and stuff from photos.

    If you click on the blue text it opens Maps.

    Right..
    Thanks... But, I was talking specifically about the "places" icon under the Bixby vision icons (next to text)

    Ok I got Bixby Vision up but it didn't want to be an option for the downloaded receipt of yours so Intok a photo of a menu and it seemed to work

    Yes, but it just reminded me of how integrated stuff like that was with the Pixel... It's splitting hairs, really. Thanks again for testing.

    It's part of google photos. Open a photo and click the square symbol.

    How come it's coming up as "Install" in the Play Store?
