Google Images will display captions on mobile searches

Google Images will display captions on mobile searches

By adding more context around images, results can become much more useful. Elements such as badges, for recipe or product, helped users find what they were looking for.

The newly added captions will appear just above the domain address in bold and feature the title of the web page where each image is published.

For example, if you search for [time in los angeles] or [time in new zealand] Google will show the answer, and then show a button below the answer to load the search results. Images on mobile search will now have captions that include the domain url from where it came from to give content and a bit more information about the results of your visual search. According to Google, the new improvement is meant to offer users more context so that they can find what the image is about and whether the website might contain more relevant info. You may also decide to visit the webpage to see extra images and learn more. It's essentially a way to infuse regular Search results with the Image results. For instance, a user will now know that the searched fruit is called carambola or starfruit, and that it's popular in China without even clicking on one of the links.

Image captions are rolling out globally starting this week for the Google app (Android and iOS) and mobile browsers. This also helps you choose the result page to click and explore further.
