Google adds badges to image search to identify GIFs and videos

Google has launched a new feature for image search called badges that will categorize the content behind selected images. For example, if a picture is pulled from a recipe or from a video, the badge will identify it as such.

The new feature, which is available on the mobile web and in the Google app for Android devices, will also label GIFs. That should help save some time when you’re looking for the perfect response to whatever stupid thing your friend said. Google hasn’t said when the feature will be available on its iOS app, but it shouldn’t be too long before it shows up.
