Google lens has now added tools to Google lens that can help directly read and process handwritten notes and then copy them to your PC. This works flawlessly if your handwriting is neat and works fine when individual letters are discernible.

The trick could be very useful if you have to lift contacts from an old diary or if you have to shift handwritten notes to Google keep or any other note app that you may use.
