GoogleWhen doing a Google Image Search on mobile, have you ever been shown large filter buttons for your image search requests?  If you have, as some already have discovered for themselves, you may wonder if they are brand new.  Well, according to Google, they are indeed new.

It seems that this feature was added earlier this summer and confirmed that this is a permanent change, and not just some test.

In order to find these special filter buttons, you need to conduct a search on your mobile phone in Google Image Search.  If you do the right kind of search like
