Google Images UP213

Google Images (previously Google Image Search) is a search engine owned by Google that allows users to search the World Wide Web for images. It was introduced on July 12, 2001 due to a demand for pictures of the Green Versace dress of Jennifer Lopez worn in February 2000 at the Grammy Awards.

The dress became an overnight sensation and also the most popular search query that Google had ever seen. At that time, search results were simply blue links and users weren't able to access images on Google.

Google Images was launched in July, 2001 with over 250 million images. Today, Google Images offers more than 20 billion images.
