For anyone that uses the web frequently, social media platforms in particular, coming across an image that sparks interest is likely to happen.

Microsoft Edge reverse image search

Thanks to this feature, users will be able to run reverse search images more efficiently since they no longer need to leave the current tab in order to do that.

The functionality will be performed with Bing, and at the moment there is no option to change the search engine with a different one.

As mentioned above, the feature is available at the moment only for Insiders, and in order to use it they will have to right-click on an image and select the Search in the sidebar for the image option.

The search results will immediately be shown on the right side of the page, with a list of related content and web results.

The feature supports all common picture formats and it can also extract the text from an image instantly allowing for it to be copied.

As of right now the feature is not available for everyone and it will have to pass different Edge Insider channels before it becomes available for the general users.

Although the browser is still missing important features that Chrome already has, for example, it does seem to catch up on them quickly and we’re eager to see what next will be in store from them.
