Google is starting to roll out its new “About This Image” tool. It will provide background information about images in Google Search. The tool is available for users in English around the world.

The About This Image tool is designed to show the origin of an image, including its metadata (if available).

There will also be information about what was previously written on sites about this image. And the metadata will help determine whether this image was generated by AI.

As a reminder, it will be possible to create AI-generated videos in Google Photos. For videos, photos will be sorted by geolocation or with selected people.
