Over the years Google has made changes and improvements to the way its image search returns results. However according to a report from TechCrunch, Google is testing yet another layout and this one seems to be inspired by Pinterest, as you can see in the screenshot above, so if you do enjoy how Pinterest lays out its content, then this should be good news for you.
For those who aren’t sure what the differences are, basically right now when you do a regular image search, it will surface images and you would have to click on them one by one to see what website it leads to and what it might be used for. With the new Pinterest-style layout, it will already provide users with a caption that tells them what to expect from the website the image is hosted on.
This means that at a glance users will know what to look for without actually having to click them one by one. However as TechCrunch points out, this appears to be a test at the moment which means that not everyone will see it when they do an image search. It is unclear if the company has plans to launch it in full, but they have confirmed that they are testing it.
In a statement made to TechCrunch by a Google spokesperson, “We’re constantly experimenting to improve our experience with Google Images and don’t have anything further to announce at this time.”
