‘Find Image Source’ Feature Of Google Lens Is Bringing Back Classic Google Image Search Into The Spotlight In Chrome

For years, so many of us were accustomed to using the good old Google Image Search bar to help us find exactly what we're looking for. While it may have taken a while, we had millions of ideas for inspiration at our disposal.

But with time, things became a little more modern. The world was soon given a means by which they could perform a range of other image searches too, in particular Google Lens.

What if you already had one image in mind and wished to seek another one that was more or less similar?

The introduction of Google Lens was considered to be a revolutionary breakthrough as it allowed users to explore everything around them in an innovative manner.

This included translating text, looking up different words, and adding a list of events to their calendar. Similarly, you could call up a number or simply perform the copy and paste option with ease.

If you came across an outfit that you loved or perhaps an ideal centerpiece for your living room, all you would need to do is capture it, without having to resort to typing it in the search box. And before you knew it, you'd have plenty of similar pictures in front of you.

While many adored the new ‘reverse search image’ feature on their mobile devices, Google felt the time had come to incorporate it onto desktop computer through Chrome browser.

This was referred to as the modern way of getting inspiration.

But some critics were quick to point out how it was not as user-friendly as the typical search bar option that most of us were accustomed to. Yes, the reverse search image feature was great in some aspects but not so in others.

Keeping that in mind, Google Lens seems to have heard so many people’s prayers and that’s exactly why it has introduced the ‘find image source’ feature, to make the image search easier. This is sure to bring back the classic Google Image Search option (AKA reverse image search) of the past, something that many were waiting for.

So, what benefits can we expect? The amalgamation of the duo will give the best of both worlds, which means enhanced user convenience with an innovative image exploration.
