No text? No problem for Chrome’s search by image
Google Chrome updated on Tuesday with some new features that will make it easier to search on desktops and easier to use on Android.
The stable channel for Chrome on desktops, version 30, now comes with “search by image.” Right-click on any image, and you’ll see an option to search using the image as the subject of the query. This works on Windows, Mac, and Linux.
Other changes in desktop Chrome include new Chrome Web apps application programming interfaces (APIs), which will make the Web apps function more like native mobile apps with in-app payments, saving to a media gallery, and downloads.
