Tablet image results in new carousel view

Thursday, December 8, 2011 | 8:00 AM

(Cross-posted on the Inside Search blog)

In July, we started to evolve the Google design and experience on Android and iOS tablets by updating features like larger touch targets and enhanced image viewing to make searching faster and easier. Today, we’re building on that foundation by adding a new image carousel for viewing large image results within a few swipes.

As someone who enjoys being outdoors, I like exploring beautiful images of nature. With the new image carousel, I can discover photos of bright sea anemones or colorful lorikeet birds on my tablet in a more interactive and immersive way. Now when I tap on an image result, it’ll expand in the carousel view and I can swipe through the search results. To learn more about an image, a tap on the web page preview, title, description or URL will take me directly to the webpage. See how you can take the image carousel for a spin:





Try out the new image carousel by going to Google on your iOS or Android tablet’s browser and searching for your favorite images. This feature is currently available in over 40 languages.

I hope you enjoy searching for beautiful images in this new view.

When can we expect the ICS push to the US WIFI Xoom, clearly this Xoom is running it and it is supposed to be a GED? Can we get any information on that?

So why am I unable to see the redesigned Google Search or Image Search features on my Droid X or Nook Color CM7? Do I have to have Honeycomb to be able to access the cool new search pages?

Never mind, had to do some digging to find out that only Android 3.1+ is supported. Thanks for thinking of us second-class Android users, Google.
