Google Launches New Image Search for iPhone, iPod Touch, and Android

iPhone, iPod Touch, and Android users in the US, UK and Japan are getting a brand spanking new image search from Google. Now image search results on these platforms return 20 results on a single page.

From the results, users can view a larger thumbnail image, visit the site where the image is hosted, or view the image alone in its full size. The new version also includes a filter where users can narrow their results to display people's faces, clip art, line drawings, or photo content. This type of filter was added to the regular Google Image Search last December.

To use the search, browse to Google.com on the iPhone, iPod Touch or Android browser and then select "Images" before searching.
