Google Introduces Circle to Search: A New Way to Search on Your Phone

Circle to Search

Gone are the days of typing out keywords or using voice commands to find information on your phone. Google has introduced a new feature called Circle to Search that lets you search for information by circling, highlighting, scribbling, or tapping on what you’re curious about. This new feature is available on Pixel 8 and Pixel 8 Pro phones.

So, how does Circle to Search work? Let’s say you’re watching a video and you see a pair of shoes you like. You can simply circle the shoes on your screen, and Circle to Search will show you similar shoes, tell you where to buy them, and even give you reviews. Or, maybe you’re scrolling through social media and you see a corn dog that looks delicious. You can circle the corn dog, and Circle to Search will show you recipes, tell you where to find the best corn dogs near you, and even give you fun facts about corn dogs.

Circle to Search is also great for learning about new things. Let’s say you come across a term you’ve never heard before, like “thrift flip.” You can circle the term, and Circle to Search will show you what it means, give you examples of thrift flips, and even show you how to do your own thrift flip.

Circle to Search is a powerful new tool that makes it easier than ever to find information on your phone. It’s also a lot of fun to use! So, if you have a Pixel 8 or Pixel 8 Pro, be sure to try out Circle to Search today.

Here are some additional tips for using Circle to Search:

  • The bigger the circle, the more information you’ll get. So, if you’re just trying to learn what something is, a small circle will suffice. But if you want to find similar items or get more detailed information, draw a larger circle.
  • You can use Circle to Search on almost any screen, including videos, photos, social media, and web pages.
  • If you’re not sure how to use Circle to Search, just ask the Google Assistant. Say “Hey Google, how do I use Circle to Search?”

Circle to Search is launching January 31 on select premium Android smartphones including Pixel 8 and Pixel 8 Pro in all languages and locations where they are available.
