Looking for a meme image or GIF you saw a few months back? Wish you could quickly find it again without saving it in a bookmark or in your phone storage? Google understands.
Now, when you search for an image in Chrome on Android, you can save it for easy access later. Think Pinterest, but without comments and re-pins (yet?). Here's how it works:
Step 1: Search for any image with Google Image Search. This example will work with "cute kittens."
Step 2: Tap on an image of interest and press the star icon to the bottom right of the image.
Step 3: After saving, you'll see a new banner display that lets you view all saved images. You can tap this, or head to www.google.com/save to see all saved images. Right now this URL only works from your mobile device.
Bonus feature: You can also organize your images with tags, so they are easier to find. Just tap an image you've saved, press the pencil icon to edit it and then add a tag at the bottom.
Note: This feature was originally labeled Collections, but has since been renamed to Tags.
What do you think of this new feature? Very useful, or too similar to Pinterest? Something else? Share your thoughts in the comments.
