At I/O 2022, Google provided a number of updates regarding search including a powerful new feature called scene exploration.
One new addition is support for Google Lens inside the default Google Search bar, which makes it easier to point your camera at an object and look it up on the web. However, to support more natural search across a range of inputs, Google is looking to enhance multisearch by making it easier to find info about local businesses with the new Near Me feature.

On stage, Google demoed this by showing a picture of chocolate bars in a store, before using scene exploration to call out additional info like the presence of nuts, user ratings and more.
