Reverse image searching
Other than just pictures, the feature will also sort within videos such as Google's YouTube. For instance, if your bike is broken and you need some help to fix it but have forgotten its name, thus preventing you from searching. The point-and-ask searching mode makes it seamless to find the exact moment in a video that can assist.
People can also run reverse images searches on the desktop Chrome browser or the iOS Google app. Selecting a picture will find similar online visuals, assisting people in having a streamlined shopping experience on Amazon.com. In addition, the tech giant added about its licensing of a free Address Maker app for organizations and Govts to navigate routes and designate addresses to homes and ventures that are not on Google Maps.
