When you do an image search on Google, sometimes the results might not necessarily be what you want and that the results could be even more confusing. However the good news for Google users is that it looks like the company will be trying to make things a bit clearer and more contextual for users.

This will come in the form of captions that will be added to Google Image search results on mobile devices. As you can see in the screenshot above, the left shows the old version of Google Images where images are displayed based on what you have searched for. On the right are images with a caption that gives users a bit more context as to what they are looking at.

According to Google, “This week we’re adding captions to image results, showing you the title of the web page where each image is published. This extra piece of information gives you  more context so you can easily find out what the image is about and whether the website would contain more relevant content for your needs.”

The changes should be living and rolling out to users so if you do use Google Image search on your mobile, this could be worth checking out.
