Google has rolled out a minor update to its Search by Image feature, which will enable the search engine to better detect image subjects and provide users with new and more related content.
Google had launched the Search by Image feature last year. The feature lets users upload a photo to Google search bar and use the image as a 'search item', or alternatively, use a Google image result to find similar images. Earlier, Google's search by image was able to detect photos, but then very base level. But now Google is integrating its Knowledge Graph into Search by Image, which will enable smart searches and provide more relevant information. This means if you upload an image of a flower, Google will not simply provide generic images of flowers but will attempt to find that particular flower. With the incorporation of Knowledge Graph, search by image results will appear as the images below:
This update is considered to be part of what will most likely be a continuously growing set of updates to make the feature the next big thing in search. To know more about the update, click here. Meanwhile, check out Google's video for all the ways you can search using an image:
