The Google Image Search app for Android is getting a new “similar items” feature offering users a selection of products to buy related to their search.
The feature is aimed at giving users a way to find products in photos via Image Search.
For example, when a user conducts a search for images containing specific products and finds one they like, they would be able to pull up multiple similar images by clicking on that image.
Initially at least, the similar items feature will support only handbags, sunglasses and shoes. Mobile users searching for any of these products on Google will be able to get multiple product images along with pricing information and from where to buy them.
