Google Images gets smarter with contextual information for mobile searches
What you need to know
- Google is rolling out Knowledge Graph integration with Images.
- Image searches in the U.S. for certain types of photos will show additional relevant contextual information.
- The integration will roll out from this week, with more languages planned.
Google will start integrating its Knowledge Graph better with Google Images, sharing more contextual information about certain pictures when you carry out a search on mobile in the U.S.
Google's Angela Wu, Software Engineer, Search, shared on Wednesday:
Google is making this feature available to the U.S. from this week in English, and it will expand to more languages and images as time passes.
If you use the Google Photos app on Android though, Lens integration also already offers similar functionality in Photos for pictures you take yourself, and that's available now.
