Google To Add Support For Higher Quality Images In Search, Swipe Up Images & 3D Images

During the State of the Search session at Google I/O on Thursday, Google announced that it will launch higher quality image support, 3D images, as well as the ability to swipe up images from AMP pages.

Here’s some info regarding the 3D images from Google’s keynote Wednesday, and swipe navigation with AMP articles.

Right now, it’s not clear how to opt in, but Google said to watch the Google Webmaster blog for the announcement.

Here is the slide introducing the high resolution program:
