We're taking the next step in our evolution by changing our name and logo from Office Lens to Microsoft Lens and adding some dynamic new features. Along with the new identity, we are bringing intelligent actions into the camera, including: Image to Text, Image to Table, Image to Contact, Immersive Reader, and QR Code Scan.
We are releasing an improved scan experience allowing you to re-order pages, re-edit scanned PDFs, apply a filter to all images in the document, scan up to 100 pages as images or PDFs, easily switch between local and cloud locations while saving PDF, along with an easy way to identify local and cloud files.
We will be rolling out these new features and improvements on Android first and then follow up with iOS in the coming months! Please refer to our support documentation for Android and iOS for further details.
- Download in the Google Play Store for Android
- Download in the iOS App Store (new name/version coming soon)
Pretty cool - it's a little painful seeing the tortuous shifting of platforms and name, but the underlying technology continues to get better and you just know that there will be a day in the future when scanning a multi-page document to PDF with simultaneous OCR will utterly save the day, so do keep Office Lens, sorry.... Microsoft Lens in mind!
