Updated: Added detail that text searching works in video content as well.

Google has updated Google Photos with the ability to search for text contained within your photos and videos. Google acknowledged the feature on Twitter, adding that it will roll out to users "starting this month". Phone Scoop was able to use the feature successfully. For example, searching for "wi-fi" brought up photos containing that text, useful for capturing and recalling local Wi-Fi passwords. Users can also copy text directly from the photo using the Lens feature.
