Google has always been about upgrading its services to make things faster for everybody – instant search results, autocomplete – basically everything that helps you to look for what you want in a shorter amount of time and with fewer actions. Well they’ve just introduced a new update to their search engine to make it easier to look for images.
Whenever you search for something on the regular search, Google will try to determine if you’re looking for images or not. If it believes that you’re looking for images rather than text, it will show you more image results than regular text links in the search results. In addition to the image search results, you can mouse over them to see enlarged versions of the images, helping you determine if it’s what you want more efficiently.
You no longer have to click the images tab to find images – adding “pictures” or “photos” to the end of your search query is a pretty good giveaway that the search engine can pick up on. Why not head over to Google to give it a try? This update to Google is currently available in English and will be available globally over the next month.
