Google Images and the Discover feed will begin to show some of these visual stories going forward, Google said. While their portfolio of services has grown immensely, Search is still the thing they are most known for. Google also says they will start delivering more content that they think you have not seen even if it is older content. Along with the new name comes a redesign that should look familiar with the recent Material Theme updates. A new "featured videos" card for automatically played results will also appear for some queries. Next up with a pile of new features is Google Images, with changes including Lens integration, image ranking tweaks, and expanded captions for context. You can click on any of the results and see relevant images. This means it may surface content that's not "new to the web, but are new to you". Things will look a little different with a new asterisk icon in the trademark Google colors to signify the Discover tab in the Google mobile app.

Priority is also given to web pages where the image in question appears front-and-center on the page itself.

Google is making Search much more visual with the help of computer vision. The recommendations for alternative search terms already present on Mobile are also coming to Google Images on the desktop.

The feature takes a page from Snapchat and Instagram "Stories" by showing interactive photos and videos with text that usually last no more than 30 seconds or so.

Other new features are aimed at helping users carry out what the firm called longer "journeys" in search.

She said: 'I am a social activist who advocates for women's rights and against discrimination in any form'. The activist complains that manspreading is being "fought around the world - but hushed up here".

"For Zion National Park, you might see a video for each attraction, like Angels Landing or the Narrows", Edwards wrote.

In the 20 or so years since then, Google has changed a lot - while the primary colours in the logo and the search engine's name has stayed the same, the company has added a ton of new products, including Gmail, the world's most popular webmail product, and Android, which powers most of the world's smartphones.

Lastly, they are bringing Google Lens to Google Images, which analyzes images and finds objects of interest within them.

The biggest change to Google Images announced today is the coming addition of Lens for AI-powered exploration of images that appear in search queries.

Next up is something called Activity Cards.
