You Can Now Search Through Your Google+ Photos Straight From Google Search [Updates]

Ads by Google

google-plus-logoGoogle has just announced a new search feature, which lets you search within and across your Google+ photo albums from Google Search itself. All you have to do is need sign into the account you use to store your Google+ photo albums and fire away with a keyword. What takes this search technology up a notch is Google’s introduction of machine learning and computer vision to the way it recognizes specific photographs.

Let’s say you want to search for photos that have food in them. Set your query as “my photos of food” , and Google will retrieve all the relevant photos. You can do the search from Google’s search box or from within Google+ photos. This search improvement is a step in the right direction for pinpoint searching and also for finding those needles in the photo stacks. As you build up your photo library, it’s useful to know that you can retrieve long lost memories even if you didn’t put in the effort to organize your photo albums neatly in the first place.

Your photos represent some of your most important memories and life events,” says Matthew Kulick, Product Manager for Google, in the official announcement, “yet they are increasingly difficult to manage as you build up your photo library, accumulate new devices and make new friends. In many cases, searching for your photos can be challenging because the information you’re looking for is visual.”

The search is available in English on Google.com when you are signed in to your Google+ enabled Google Account. It will not be available on other Google domains, at least for now.

Do you like this new feature? Is it a reason to start using Google+ or to stop using it?
