Since mid-December I found some extreme high-formats in the Google image search. And not only in the inage-search but also in the results of universal search on the main Google result-page. I suspect that it is a test. However, this test took quite a while. Since at least mid-December, the extreme vertical formats can be found at Google . It looks a little bit strange because you can’t idetify anything. I made a sample screen:
1. Universal search:

2. English image-search
This is how it looks like in the english image-search:
3. German image-search
In Germany we see still the old version of the Google image-search. Then it looks like this:
Strange, isn’t it? May be Google decide to include these high-formats because many popular infographics are high-formated.
