How to reverse image search on Google to find information related to a specific photo

  • Google reverse image search allows you to search with an image rather than written keywords.  
  • When you reverse image search, Google finds websites, images, and information related to your photo. 
  • You can conduct a Google reverse image search on iPhone or Android with the Chrome mobile app, or on any computer. 
  • Visit Insider's Tech Reference library for more stories.

Google Images is a great place to search for pictures and photos by typing in relevant keywords. But you can also search Google using an image — called a reverse image search — to find out more information about a specific photo or graphic.

Quick tip: Though Google Images is free and easy to use, you can also try other reverse image search tools with more advanced capabilities, like TinEye. 

Here's why you might want to use it and how to Google reverse image search on a desktop web browser or the Google Chrome mobile app on your iPhone or Android. 

What is a reverse image search?

When you do a reverse image search on Google, you place a photo, or a link to a photo, in the search bar instead of a text query. Google then finds websites featuring your image as well as related images.

Google Images also detects the subject of your photo and brings up other websites related to your image topic. 

When to use Google reverse image search 

It's most helpful to search with an image on Google in the following cases: 

  • Find information about a photo. A reverse image search could bring up a website that includes a person's name or information about a product.
  • Uncover plagiarism. A reverse image search will bring up similar images. This can reveal whether an image was copied from someone else's work.
  • Find other similar images. If you want to find other photos connected to a specific image, a reverse search will also populate related pictures. 

Google reverse image search on iPhone or Android

First, you'll need to download the Google Chrome mobile app to do a reverse image search on your mobile device.

Then, you can reverse image search on iPhone or Android using a photo from the internet or a photo from your camera roll. Here's how to do it.

Digital Inspiration

Google’s search by image feature is currently available for desktops and not your iPad or mobile phone. Thus, if a friend has sent you a forwarded image on WhatsApp or Facebook that you’d like to verify, you’ll have to first transfer the photograph to a desktop and then perform a reverse image search.

Too much work, right?

With Reverse Photos, you can perform reverse image searches on Android and iPhone in few easy steps. Just click the “Upload Image” button and choose an image from the photo gallery of your mobile phone. Next, click the “Show Matching Images” button and it will send your photo into Google’s image database and show visually similar photos.
