Google is making some hefty changes to Image Search for the iPhone and Android platforms. According to the Google Mobile Blog:
- The thumbnails are square to maximize the number of images we can get on the screen at one time so you can scan them quickly
- You can swipe to see the next or previous page of results, or tap the large, stationary ‘Next’ and ‘Previous’ page buttons
- We optimized for speed so that the images appear quickly when you browse
More details, and a video after the jump.
So. Much. Tech.
Some of the biggest names in tech are coming to TNW Conference in Amsterdam this May.
So far the search is available in 38 languages, with enhancements that extend into the full image viewer as well. You’ll notice images on a black background, with swipe-to-next controls available.
And what would a feature release from Google be, if it didn’t include a video?
