Google on Monday announced a new feature to make searching for images a tad-bit easier for users. The feature lets users star and bookmark images directly from Google's image search in their mobile browser. It also lets you categorise those images in a folder for easy access. The feature is only for the US customers for now and limited to mobile search. Google says users should stay logged in to their Google accounts to use the new feature.
Under the image search results, users can select an image and tap on the star to bookmark it. Once you've starred few images, Google will give you an option to put all of them under folders. A starred image can be added in the folder by selecting it and tapping on the pencil-shaped edit icon. The new feature is available for all major browsers on both Android and iOS says Diego Accame, Software Engineer, Google in a company blog post.
Google has lately been pushing a slew of update for its apps for its mobile operating system. Google in October updated its Search app letting users tap and play gif images in image search results. The update brought the ability to add a photo or review for their favourite local places and get map results inside the app when searching for an address.
Last month, the search giant announced several important updates to the Google Photos service, one of which was the Free Up Space feature. The feature asks users to bulk-delete those media files that have been already backed up on Google Photos from the device.
