Google Search Gains Thumbnails to Help Sort Results
Google has updated its mobile search tool to include thumbnail images that accompany the results. The basic idea is to help people easily identify which results match their actual query. For example, searching for "bear" turns up results for the animal and the Chicago Bears football team, while searching for "tiger" turns up results for the large cat and Tiger Woods. The accompanying thumbnails make it easy to differentiate between results so people can find the exact information they want. The new thumbnail images are available in Google Search for Android and iOS.
