Google will display the “fact check” labels underneath thumbnails that appear in image search results along with a summary of third-party fact-checkers’ findings, as it already does on its general search engine and on Google News results

Alphabet Inc’s Google on Monday said it would start showing fact-checking labels on Google Images search results globally, as tech companies come under increasing pressure to combat the viral spread of misleading claims online.

Google will display the “fact check” labels underneath thumbnails that appear in image search results along with a summary of third-party fact-checkers’ findings, as it already does on its general search engine and on Google News results.

The company started showing fact-checking labels to U.S. viewers on its video platform YouTube in April in a bid to curb Coronavirus misinformation, which exploded on social media as the pandemic intensified.
