Use Google reverse image search on your phone

Google’s reverse image search is one of the most underrated tools the company has created. And given that people take millions of photos a day on their phones, they should be able to look up related pictures easily.

For some reason, Google hasn’t made the reverse image search feature available on mobile devices — you can’t use an image as your search query in Google Now.

Thankfully, perpetual tinkerer Amit Agarwal, who runs the popular tech tips blog Digital Inspiration, has built a little Web app to make things easier.

Just visit this link and click ‘Select Image’ to load up a picture from your gallery, and then click ‘Reverse Search’ to find similar ones online.
