Google Camera : Scan, copy and translate texts

Google Camera 7.2 now allows us to scan, copy and translate texts. Google Lens will suggest the option to Scan document. Clicking on the suggestion will take a photo and adjust the corners of the document automatically, although we can adjust them manually. Then it will allow us to share the document or save it in a PDF.

Finally, XDA-Developers reports that these features are now available only on Pixel 4 and Pixel 3. But, some commenters on the XDA article claim they have the features on older devices.
