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 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?
