Android: Microsoft Office Lens - PDF Scanner - Apps on Google Play
iOS: ‎Microsoft Lens|PDF Scan

Handwriting from whiteboards, notes, letters, and other non-typed text can also be scanned and transcribed. The capability will first be available in the Microsoft Lens app and followed by Office mobile in a future release. You will be able to scan handwritten letters, to-do lists, and other material and simply convert it into text.

Microsoft has improved the scanning quality with the Lens technology with better edge detection and added filters too. Over time, these improvements will be added where the Lens technology is already integrated across Microsoft 365 apps such as Teams, Outlook, and Office.

We're taking the next step in our evolution by changing our name and logo from Office Lens to Microsoft Lens and adding some dynamic new features.

Along with the new identity, we are bringing intelligent actions into the camera, including: Image to Text, Image to Table, Image to Contact, Immersive Reader, and QR Code Scan.

We are releasing an improved scan experience allowing you to re-order pages, re-edit scanned PDFs, apply a filter to all images in the document, scan up to 100 pages as images or PDFs, easily switch between local and cloud locations while saving PDF, along with an easy way to identify local and cloud files.

We will be rolling out these new features and improvements on Android first and then follow up with iOS in the coming months!
