Google Rolls Out Image-Saving Feature to Desktop

By March 30, 2016 June 26th, 2019 No Comments

You can already save images on mobile using a mobile browser. But now Google also allows the same to be done on desktop. Make sure that you are signed-in and you can easily save an image to Google with the help of the star icon. The image gets saved and you can access it through your mobile device. You can also group images together with tags and organise your collections easily.

Easier Image Organisation

According to Google, the new image-saving feature will help its users to organise their images across multiple devices. Google has also provided an example of how you can use the new feature on its official Google Search blog.

You can conduct a desktop search for product images and tap the star for saving them. Once in a store, you can access the saved product images in your mobile device. This will make it easier to purchase the desired products. The feature also allows tagging the saves for easier organisation.

Google has initially rolled out this new feature in the U.S., but it is expected to be made available to U.K. users soon. Users will have to be signed-in with their Google account. It will make image searches and saves more useful.

Using the Feature

Using this new image-saving feature is quite simple:

  • Search for the desired images in Google Image search
  • Click on any image you want to save or use later
  • Click the star icon
  • Click on ‘Save’

These simple steps will have the image saved to your collection.

Mobile Image-Saving Feature


The feature was launched for mobile devices in November last year. It allowed all mobile users to easily save Google images on all the commonly used browsers on iOS and Android devices. This allowed saving images to user collections or for viewing later.

Thanks to this new feature, users will no longer have to conduct multiple searches. Once you have found the right images in Google Image search, they can be saved and accessed anywhere and at any time.
