As part of its 20th anniversary, Google in September laid out the future of Search. Alongside Google Discover and dynamically organized results, the company is making information lookup more visual with Stories and featured videos. Google Lens is also coming to Google Images, with that integration now rolling out.

Every image in the mobile web version of Google Images now features a Google Lens icon underneath. If Lens has already identified objects of interest, the button will feature a badge that notes how many items were found in the photo.

Pressing the Lens icon will highlight the interesting subjects with dots, by tapping an item sliding up a panel of related images or products. If you are looking at is not already marketed, you can simply circle it and Lens will perform a visual search.

Shopping is a big possible use case for this functionality, while Google notes that website owners will benefit from another Way to get content discovered.

For example, you might come to Google Images looking for ideas to redecorate your living room. Under ditt søk, du kommer over en sofa du liker i et bilde, men du kan ikke vite hvilken stil det er eller hvor å kjøpe det. Alt du behöver göra er at trykke på knappen Lens, så skal du trykke på et punkt på siden eller tegne rundt det, og Google Images vil vise dig relaterede oplysninger og billeder. From there, you can learn more about it, or find places where you might be able to buy a similar couch.

The sheet that slides up with results is similar to the Google Lens interface in Google Assistant and Photos. Over time, Google Lens will work to automatically highlight more types of images with dots, including landmarks, animals, and plants.

Google Lens in Google Images is already live for English users in the U.S.
