March 29, 2017: Aimed at helping Bengali speakers discover new information quickly, Google today announced the introduction of Knowledge Graph in Bengali language on Google Search. In addition, Google Search will now also support spell correction for Bengali queries improving the Search experience for the Bengali speakers around the world.

The Knowledge Graph enables users to search for things, people or places that Google knows about — landmarks, celebrities, cities, sports teams, buildings, geographical features, movies, celestial objects, works of art and more. The feature allows users to get straight to the answer instead of scrolling through webpages.

Starting today, when a user searches for cricket legend Sourav Ganguly in Bengali, Google Search will display things instead of strings – and instantly get information that’s relevant to the query such as Sourav’s date of birth, his number as an active cricket player, or links to his profile on social media in Bengali.

To help users get answers even when they misspell a word, Google Search will now support spell correction for Bengali queries, suggesting similar queries whenever a typo made its way into users search query.

Google has already begun to gradually roll-out the Knowledge Graph in Bengali and will be made available to users around the world. Today’s update will make it easier for the over 200 million Bengali speakers to search for appropriate information.

Google Knowledge Graph is currently available in 41 languages, maps out how more than 1 billion things in the real world are connected, and over 70 billion facts about them. Google claims that it is tuned based on what people search for, and what Google finds out on the web, improving results over time. (IANS)

  • After partnering with Getty images google no longer has it’s ‘view image’ button.
  • The button was extremely useful for users since when you’re searching for a picture, there’s a very good chance that you want to take it and use it for something
  • The Visit button remains, so users can see images in the context of the web pages they’re on.

San Francisco: In a move to curb the lifting of copyrighted images from its platform, Google has removed the “view image” button from its image search results. “Today we’re launching some changes on Google Images to help connect users and useful websites.

“This will include removing the View Image button. The Visit button remains, so users can see images in the context of the web pages they’re on,” Google Search Liaison tweeted on Friday. The change is seen as part of Google’s partnering with stock photo provider Getty Images.

Google last week signed a multi-year global licensing deal with Getty Images, allowing it to use Getty’s content within its various products and services. According to a report in The Verge, Google will make copyright attribution and disclaimers more prominent in image search results.

Now, users have to wait for a website to load and then scroll through it to find the image. “The change is essentially meant to frustrate users. Google has long been under fire from photographers and publishers who felt that image search allowed people to steal their pictures, and the removal of the view image button is one of many changes being made in response,” the report said.

Websites sometimes disable the ability to right-click, too, which would make it even harder for someone to grab a photo they’re looking for. “Fortunately, there’s still at least one way around it: if you right click, you can select “open image in new tab” or “view image” (or whatever your browser’s equivalent option is), and you’ll still open up the full-size picture,” the report added.

In addition to removing the ‘view image’ button, Google has also removed the ‘search by image’ button that appeared when people opened up an image.
