Photomath, Google’s latest artificial intelligence app, aims to help users solve complex math problems.

The app empowers users to solve math problems, from basic math to calculus, simply by taking a picture of an equation or word problem. It offers step-by-step explanations, making it a valuable tool for students and learners of all ages.

Photomath’s popularity stems from its speed, accuracy, and user base, and it seems to be one of the most successful apps in its category worldwide. It is also possible to subscribe to Photomath Plus, which costs $9.99 per month or $69.99 per year. This subscription unlocks additional features such as textbook solutions, animated tutorials and in-depth explanations.

Founded in Croatia in 2014, Photomath has over 100 million downloads and has 4.5 stars in the Play Store and 4.8 stars in the Apple App Store. Google acquired the app in May 2022.

The acquisition of Photomath could signal Google’s plans to further bolster its AI capabilities in its products. Adept at recognizing text, solving problems and interpreting results, Photomath’s AI can be integrated into existing Google products such as Lens and Search, improving their text recognition and problem-solving capabilities.
