Google Image Search helps you surf shots of your favorite people, places and things as well as research products, destinations, dishes and styles. Now on the Google app for Android and mobile web, we’re adding relevant badges to images indicating what else you can discover with a single tap. These badges will help you uncover images where next steps or more in-depth information is available—everything from bags to buy, to recipes to try.
Now in the bottom lefthand corner of the image, you’ll see a badge that categorizes the image you’re viewing, as well as text to help clarify the action you can take. So for example, if you look for "cupcakes" in Image Search, you'll see badges for both video and recipe results. For other queries, you may also see badges for products and GIFs as well.
We hope this new feature will help you jumpstart your journey of visual discovery—connecting you with the right info and sites to suit your needs.
