AI is Used by Google’s New App to Answer Math Difficulties

With its latest app, Google is expanding its portfolio of AI-powered productivity tools and assisting users in solving complex mathematical issues.

Google has formally added Photomath to its app store. The Croatia-based service was purchased by the search giant in May 2022, but the transaction wasn’t completed until last year following the acquisition’s approval by the European Commission.

Though Google’s existing products, such as Docs and Search, can solve arithmetic difficulties, Photomath goes one step further by offering a more practical and effective method of handling those annoying math problems.

With Photomath, users can solve a wide range of mathematical puzzles, including those involving calculus and trigonometry. All you need to do is take a photo of the equation, and Photomath will give you detailed instructions on how to solve it. Your math assignment files are also available for upload. For students and parents who frequently review their children’s homework, it’s a game-changer.

The steps for addressing problems are arguably the best feature of this program. It teaches you how to find the solution on your own rather than just giving it to you. It also functions without an internet connection.

Additionally, Google offers a subscription service called “Photomath Plus” that costs $9.99 per month or $69.99 for the whole year. You can get helpful extras like animated demonstrations, textbook solutions, and more thorough explanations with this membership.

This software has been around for a while—it was released in 2014 and has been downloaded over 100 million times. Additionally, it has received 4.7 ratings in the App Store and 4.5 stars in the Play Store. Photomath’s reputation has presumably grown from its accuracy and speed.

It’s possible that some of you have also used Google Lens’s “Homework” filter. Furthermore, it’s not difficult to see Photomath’s AI being integrated into Google products like Lens. That might significantly improve the text recognition and problem-solving capabilities.
