Samsung introduces 'Circle to Search' AI feature; How To Use?

‘Circle to Search’, what could it be, right? Well, for most of tech enthusiasts, the name is self-explanatory i.e. you circle an area and search but for most, some is explaining required, right?

Circle to Search is an AI feature powered by Samsung. It brings the ability to circle an area of the web or image, social media, highlight a word, tap a subject, or select text to find search results ASAP. It works similarly to Google Lens albeit with a slightly more interactive feel to it.

Samsung’s Circle to Search feature works on multisearch that pulls records that are relevant to the user query such as shoes and then adds the strings such as ‘red’ or ‘white’ to close in results. You can take a photo and search ‘How often should I water this?’ or click a bottle of jam and search for ‘What can I use it with to eat?’ and the AI will pull the answers in just a click.

At present, the Circle to Search feature is limited to Samsung Galaxy S24 series – S24, S24+, and S24 Ultra. It will be rolled out to Pixel 8 and Pixel 8 Pro starting January 31st.
