Microsoft is renaming its Office Lens app. Going forward, the app will be known as Microsoft Lens. Alongside the new name, Microsoft is rolling out several new features to the app, including an improved scanning experience, the option to add filters to images, and the ability to scan up to 100 pages as PDFs or images. The app is also gaining new intelligent actions, including image to text, image to table, image to contact, an immersive reader, and QR Code scanning.
These features will roll out first to Android and then come to iOS in the “coming months.” Microsoft outlines the upcoming features and the app’s name change in a Tech Community post.
The new scanning experience for Microsoft Lens lets you re-order pages, re-edit scanned PDFs, and apply filters to all images in a document. It also lets you scan up to 100 pages as images or PDFs and to easily switch between local and cloud locations for saving files.
Microsoft Lens powers the camera within Microsoft 365 mobile apps, including Teams, OneDrive, Outlook, and Office. As a result, the camera within these apps should see improvements as well.
Microsoft recently announced other upcoming features to Microsoft Lens alongside upcoming improvements to other mobile apps.
