The release of Google’s newest app is another step toward the widespread use of AI-powered productivity tools. This application seeks to help users in resolving challenging mathematical problems.

Google purchased the well-known math-solving app Photomath in May 2022. Once the deal received regulatory approval, it was completed last summer. Photomath, which was initially discovered by 9to5Google, has now moved to Google’s publisher account on the iOS/iPadOS Play Store and Apple App Stores.

With over 100 million downloads and a 4.5-star rating on the Play Store and a 4.8-star rating on the App Store, Photomath was first released in Croatia in 2014. With the help of the software, users can take a photo of an equation or word issue and use it to solve a variety of mathematical problems, from basic math to calculus. Because it offers detailed explanations, it’s a useful resource for learners of all ages, including students.

Photomath is one of the most widely used apps in its category worldwide, and its popularity is mostly due to its user base, quickness, and accuracy. Additionally, a subscription alternative called “Photomath Plus” is available for $9.99 per month or $69.99 annually. Additional features including animation tutorials, in-depth explanations, and textbook solutions are unlocked with this membership.

How does this benefit Google?

It’s possible that you’ve seen or maybe utilized Google Lens’s “Homework” filter to solve difficulties. Google Search also provides specialized assistance for difficult arithmetic subjects. The acquisition of Photomath may indicate Google’s intentions to further enhance its AI capabilities throughout its product line. The AI from Photomath, which is skilled in text recognition, problem-solving, and result interpretation, may be incorporated into Google’s current products, such as Lens and Search, to improve text recognition and problem-solving capabilities.

As the competition for AI assistants increases, Google will stop at nothing to surpass Microsoft’s front-runner, ChatGPT. Combining Google’s own AI projects like Gemini with Photomath’s specialized math AI might result in a genuinely all-purpose AI assistant.
