Google Chrome replaces reverse right-click image search with Lens

Google Chrome replaces reverse right-click image search with Lens

If you’re using an updated version of Chrome, you should be able to simply right-click on photos, and you’ll see a menu that says “use Google Lens.” That’s all. Yes, reverse image search as we’ve come to know it still exists, but instead of a couple of clicks, it’s now a bit more of a journey to get there. Users can also still get extensions that make reverse image searches via the original feature easy, of course, but if you like Lens, congrats! It’s now your main Chrome desktop option when tracking down whatever you’re looking for.

For some time, Google has been experimenting with the best ways to use Lens. It was initially exclusively available on mobile devices. Then it was quietly included to Chrome, and several users recently discovered a fully search-integrated test version on a desktop browser when using Incognito Mode. Another notable change, according to GHacks, is that Lens is now the sole reverse image search option when you right-click on a photo in Chrome.

Screengrab illustrating change in Chrome right-click menu. The search monolith hasn’t addressed the change, but it’s reasonable to believe Google is doubling down on the gospel of Google Lens with another push for people to utilize that rather than the legacy version. And the Lens option could offer better context for what you’re searching for. In the end, we’ll just have to wait and see if users ultimately approve of the shift.
