It may not be immediately obvious how to perform a reverse image search from your mobile device, depending on which mobile browser you use.

This browser includes a quick and simple built-in method for performing reverse image searches.

Reverse image searching 101
Google’s “Search by Image” feature is a useful feature that performs a reverse image search, allowing you to find related images by uploading an image or entering an image URL. This is accomplished by employing advanced algorithms to analyze the image you’ve submitted and locate others that resemble it.
Computer reverse image search is simple on a desktop. Simply navigate to images.google.com and click on the camera icon in the search bar.
You can now enter the URL of an image you saw online, upload an image from your hard drive, or drag an image into the search box.

Simply tap “Search Google for This Image” in the menu that appears on your screen after you’ve done the long press, and Google will perform its clever “Search by Image” functionality.
