If you check out Google Image Search, you will notice a subtle yet welcome feature. Google has launched a new feature call badges which help you to categorise the content behind the image thumbnail.

To give you some examples, if an image is from a video, then the badge will show the video icon, if it is from a recipe, then a recipe icon.


The other great aspect of this feature is that it will help you identify the type of picture e.g. jpg vs gif

At the moment it only seems to be available on the mobile web and on the Google app for Android. No word yet on when the iOS or desktop version will be launched.
