Google Lens allows you to search the internet using images instead of keywords. Lens search is now built into Google Chrome. This article will show you how to disable Google Lens search in Chrome.

Google Lens is an experimental feature at the moment. Google Chrome uses switches called “flags” to test these new features. You can enable or disable these experiments from the chrome://flags page.

To disable Google Lens search:

  1. Open a new tab and go to chrome://flags.
  2. Search and locate the following flag: Enable Lens features in Chrome.Google Lens Flag
  3. From the drop-down, select Disabled.
  4. Click the Relaunch button on the bottom-right corner of the screen.Relaunch Chrome

Google Lens search should be disabled now. If you right-click an image now, the Lens search option will not be available.

    I tried to do this already, but it said it was not available on my platform. Is there a way around this? I’m using a Samsung Galaxy a10e android phone.
