Google reverse image search is a handy feature on a computer that you can use on Android devices to view all websites that used the image you have searched for, other sizes available, and images similar to it. In order to use this feature, you need to visit images.google.com and click the camera icon, paste the image URL or upload from your computer.
Once you have the image, click search on Google and it’ll show you all the details about the image. On Android, the process is easy, but different from using a computer, and you can use several ways to do it. This can be confusing for many users, but we’ll show you how to use it below.
Methods to use Google reverse image search
This is the easiest and fastest way to Google reverse image search on Android. If you browse the internet and find an image you like and want to reverse search it, just tap and hold on it, and when the options come up, tap “Search Google for this image.”
If the image is on your Android phone or tablet, you can use ctrlq.org/google/images to perform Google reverse search. To do this:
- Go to ctrlq.org/google/images and tap Upload Picture
- Select Files and pick the image from yoru gallery
- Once it uploads, tap Show Matches
You can take a photo and reverse search instead of selecting from your device.
Use Search by Image app
In the case of multiple images on your Android device, you can use a dedicated app to save time you’d spend doing Google reverse image search per picture. A good one is the search by image app that works like ctrlq.org and you can find it on Google Play Store.
Open the app and tap + sign at the bottom
Select Image gallery and choose a picture
Tap search button and you’ll get all the information you want
