Google Images Update Removes View Image and Image Search


Why did Google remove the view image button?

Quick Answer: With concerns about piracy, Google rolled out an update in 2018 which removed the “View Image” button—something that used to redirect users directly to the image’s URL. This bypassed the publisher’s page first, leading to the concern. In line with this update, Google also made its image search copyright disclaimer more prominent.
