Circle to Search enables users to search their screen by drawing a circle over the text or image that they want to search.

However, some content may be too small or hidden by the search bar. In such cases, Circle to Search offers some solutions.

  • Users can move the search bar to the top of the screen by dragging it with one finger.
  • Users can also zoom in or out on the screen by using a two-finger pinch gesture.

These features are not widely announced, but they are very useful for selecting content that is difficult to see or reach.

Circle to Search is a useful feature that allows users to search their screen without leaving the current app. It can be used to look up words, definitions, translations, images, videos, news, and more. It also allows users to copy or share the selected content with a simple tap.
