Google search Is Testing Embedded Images In particular Search Results Snippets

SEJ reader Samuel Edwards, from Tenthwave Digital, gave us a bounce up about something he recently spotted while doing a Google search.  Google search engine seems to be testing embedded images results in the snippets of web search results.
Samuel discovered this while doing a search for” Flower_Beauty_Facebook” and I found snippets contained amazing small embedded images of profile photos of the related Facebook pages. Below is a screen cap he took:- 

So far this seems to still be in the testing stages, which creates it too much hard to tell how widespread it will be in the future. At this point its most worth nothing Google is working on bringing something different to web search results.
As we know from Google’s Authorship markup, snippets having more images tend to get a more and more click-through rate, which makes this a particularly appealing feature for website/blog owners. Having images embedded in rich snippets of pages that don’t have authorship or semantic markup would be a nice way to get more traffic without any more effort.
“ I believe that not to mention having more images in Google search results in an effective way to improve users experience for one and all, not just SEOs & website owners. “
It will be interesting to know how this feature ends up being more used in the future. I will be 100% sure to update with more information if any becomes available.
