Google+ Allows Users to Search Site for Photos

Google+ users can now filter their search results on the platform to show only photo posts, according to software engineer David Cohen.

The feature is available through a drop-down list of filters attached to the search bar on Google+. Currently, only one search filter can be applied at a time.

The search will reveal all photos that the user has permission to see, including photos shared in his or her circles and photos shared publicly.

Photography is a popular subject matter on Google+, which allows users to upload larger photos than Facebook does. There are three photography communities in the 10 largest groups on the platform, according to GPlusData. Many of Google’s improvements to the platform in recent months have focused on photo display and sharing.
