Google announced changes for image searches on mobile this week, with the company stating that it is bringing Google Lens to the service to help dive deeper into image results.

Written in its blog, “In the coming weeks, we’ll bring Lens to Google Images to help you explore and learn more about visual content you find during your searches.”

Once this happens, should you come across an image in Search that you want to find other relevant info on, you can tap on a new Lens button right below the image. Once tapped, Lens will analyze the image, then provide additional information, such as other photos and product links. Furthermore, Google will allow users to draw on any part of a photo to be analyzed, just in case the part of a photo you want scanned wasn’t picked up properly by Lens.

Again, Google says this Lens functionality in Image Search will be available in the coming weeks.
