Google adds new feature to provide information about images searched - Appy Pie

Google has announced a new feature that will help to make it easy for the users to find quick facts about what they see on Google images. These facts will come in the form of a Knowledge Graph.

Users will now be able to get more information such as visit timings, name of the particular element in the image they have searched for. The new feature will include people, places, or things related to the image from the Knowledge Graph’s database of billions of facts, helping users explore the topic in detail. Tapping on the image will further provide a short description of the searched topic.

Till date, Google Lens and Google Photos app have been doing almost similar thing within the app with photos clicked by users.

With the new feature, Google is all set to make the image search better for users with contextual information. The company has integrated its Knowledge Graph with its search to provide more information and facts when the user is searching for images.

The company said in a statement, “To generate these links to relevant Knowledge Graph entities, we take what we understand about the image through deep learning, which evaluates an image’s visual and text signals, and combine it with Google’s understanding of the text on the image’s web page.”

This information will help Google determine the most likely information relevant to a specific image. The company will then match this information with existing topics in their Knowledge Graph, and then surface the facts in Google Images.

The new feature will be first rolled out in the US for mobile searchers in English and will start appearing on images of some people, places, and things in the Google Images section and then later it will expand to more images, surfaces, more languages, and regions in future.

Google offers many special features to help the users find exactly what are looking for. The company has always added new features to remain updated in the market and help users to attain the maximum information required.

Google a few days back also announced a group calling feature for its Nest Hub Max smart display via the company’s already existing video calling services Google Duo and Google Meet. Off late the company has also launched Keen, a Pinterest rival.
