Pinterest updated its image recognition software for users to take a picture of a meal and receive a list of similar recipes to make at home

In February this year, Pinterest announced the release of an image recognition tool named Lens, which allows users to take a picture of anything they like and then find similar pictures on the applications others had posted. This feature was recently given an update to allow users to take a picture of food they’re eating and receive a list of recipes based on the food in the image. The update also includes a new food filter allowing a user to narrow down the search results of new recipes based on how long they want to cook their meal, the ingredients they want to use and any dietary restrictions they may have.

Additionally, Pinterest created a comments section through which a user can browse reviews from those who attempted to recreate the meals.
