In recent months, Google Images has picked up a number of interfaces tweaks and other functionality changes. The latest sees Image Search testing a new design on the web that features a card-like photo viewer and pill-shaped carousel.
Spotted on Twitter as part of an A/B test, the majority of users still have the current design. This new look starts to deviate with the carousel of related search terms now presented in bubbles. Used in a handful of other Google services, the pill-shaped buttons lose their current dose of color.
The biggest change involves a new in-line photo viewer. At the moment, clicking an image opens a dark, full-width panel underneath the photo with the selected photo on the left, while details like page title, domain, descriptions, and share buttons to the right. Underneath, there is also a gallery of “Related images.”
