Reverse image search is a search engine technology that takes an image file as input query and returns results related to the image. Simply put, instead of typing a word or text, you use a picture as your search to find related images from around the web.
Google’s reverse image search is one of the most underrated tools the company has created. And given that people take millions of photos a day on their phones, they should be able to look up related pictures easily.

When you search using an image, your search results may include similar images, websites that has the image or other sizes of the image you searched for.
