To inspire the art enthusiasts around the world and help them become art experts, Google has announced the latest updates on Search and Maps driving newer ways to experience artworks online integrated into Google Search.
The new feature that comes with the update helps people search for art-related things. Everyone will have access to more relevant results and the ability to go deeper into topics of interest. Google has also added a new feature in Panoramic View that gives you key insights about the artworks on your virtual museum visits.
With more than 500 million art-related searches on Google, the Google Arts and Culture team worked with Google Search engineers to improve systems understanding in recognition of artworks. The places can now be seen in person, users can read about the artists who created them, the materials they used, the art period they belong to and much more.
If you search for an artist like M.F. Husain, Google Search will pull up an interactive Knowledge Panel that will highlight ways you can explore on a deeper level, like seeing a collection of the artist’s works or even scrolling through the museums where you can view the paintings on the wall. Also, in some specific cases, you can also see picture-perfect high-resolution imagery right from Google Arts & Culture.
