All you need to do is open the image you want to copy text from, click on the lens option and that's it. It will give you the option if you want to copy the text.

To find an image with a particular text, you need to search for the specific word in the Google Photos web and it will give you the images with the concerned text.

If we look at the use of this option, it can be really helpful in situations where you just click a picture of the text instead of writing it all down. It can be used to save passwords as well.

According to a report by 9to5Google, this feature will be available on both android and iOS devices.
