Google has introduced new features that take advantage of artificial intelligence to improve the user experience offered by Google Images. Among the new features is the intelligent construction of AMP Stories. Using artificial intelligence, Google can automatically create AMP Stories for topics about popular individuals including celebrities and athletes. These stories will appear when the user searches for a popular person, and they may view the story by pressing on the Start Story button. The stories contain facts about the celebrity, and these details are packaged along with short video clips, relevant images, and links to pertinent articles.

Google is also utilizing its computer vision technology to create visual previews of search topics using featured videos from YouTube and other websites. Computer vision determines the content of a video, and Google will automatically select a portion of the video that will serve as a visual preview for a sub-topic. Tapping on the visual preview will direct the user to a new search page that concentrates on the chosen sub-topic. Furthermore, Google now prioritizes websites that regularly update content and provide authoritative information about the topic. The search giant also ranks websites wherein the image is an important part of the webpage higher in the search results. Furthermore, Google now includes image captions and relevant topics on the desktop version of Google Images. The captions, which appear below the images, contain the title of the webpage where the image was lifted from.

The search giant has been continuously adding features that aim to improve the user experience of the Google Search platform. Google recently announced that users may soon utilize Google Lens on Google Images to get more information about an image search result. People may either choose relevant parts of the photograph or let Google Lens determine the important parts of a picture. Based on the selected parts of the image, Google Lens may provide search results that contain related pictures and product pages. The tech firm also recently announced the activity cards feature, which shows previously visited web pages when the user makes a query related to a previous task.
