Google Upgrades Google Images to Allow for Quicker Comparisons

Posted on August 6, 2019 by Mehedi Hassan in Google with 2 Comments

Google is rolling out an upgraded Google Images experience on the desktop. The company is making some tiny improvements to the image viewing experience in order to allow you to better visualize your ideas. It’s a small update, but it’s pretty substantial.

The image viewer now opens up on the side instead of from the bottom, and that means you can continue scrolling and look at other options while the image is open. That’s particularly useful when you are trying to pick an item or design, for example. And Google has also made it so you can now hit the back button on your browser to go back to the last image you clicked on.

The image viewer itself will also now display important details like the brand, price, availability, and reviews where available. So if you are shopping for a product, you will be able to get the necessary information without having to click on the source website.

Google says the upgraded experience will also benefit retailers and publishers by attracting more visitors to their websites, and websites can also update their pages to display information like price, availability, etc. of their products on the image viewer.
