Google announced on its official corporate blog that in short it is going to change the structure and appearance of its Google Images service, to focus on search speed, metadata, and detailed information about the files. Using user feedback, the new Google Images will allow for faster access to the images, and will be available in the next few days.
It is just one more step forward in the company’s plans to update its corporate image, which started towards the end of 2010, and culminated with the release of Android 4.2 and important updates to Gmail, Maps, and Drive, the online storage service that absorbed Google Docs. The change in Google Images is the first in a series of serious updates that Google plans on carrying out during 2013.
There will be many new features to the new service. For example, the information about the image will be displayed below the image in the search results, instead of redirecting the users to a new page. Also, the title of each image and the website that hosts it will also appear along with the image.
They’ve also made it faster to access the website where the image is located, in addition to increasing the response speed of the service by changing the code and reorganizing how the images appear.
