Google Image Search gets badges for recipes, videos to classify results

google image badgeGoogle has updated image search on the Google App for Android and mobile search by adding badges. The aim is to make it easier for users to categorize results for selected images.

You will see badges in the bottom left corners of image results. For example, if you are looking for cupcake photos in Image Search, you will notice badges for both video and recipe results. A badge will either have text or a play button indicating the result is a video. You will also see badges for products and GIFs.
