    Open iMessage. Open a message to another person. Press the arrow on the left of the text box. Press the "A" apple store symbol. Go to "image search".

    Same problem for me. I know where I am supposed to find it, but, for me, it just isn't there. I could't figure out (so far) if this feature is only available in some countries.

    Go back to that "A" for the App Store and go to the Store and Manage and it may be switched off

    Others have reported the same. It seems to be restricted to certain countries. The ‘app’ is just not there.

    The missing image search in iMessage has already been reported here:
    http://forums.macrumors.com/threads/pictures-hub-missing-in-imessage-ios-10-gm.1993787/
    and here:
    http://forums.macrumors.com/threads/images-app-in-messages-disappeared.1996163/

    It appears that the feature right now is exclusive to certain countries (e.g. USA), as reported here. Although being available to (public) beta testers around the world previously.

    Maybe Apple someday will make it public for everyone, maybe they won't.

    For the mods: maybe this topic can be made sticky or even be reported on the front page. Apparently, a lot of people are confused by some feature being advertised by Apple and not included for everyone in the release of iOS 10.

    Ps: the only way around it right now seems to use some other iMessage-app. I use GIPHY, simply because it was the first to show in the search.

    Somewhat related maybe, how to you switch from it using bing to search? I'd rather use google.

    This is why Apple is getting on my nerves lately. They announce features and then people like my mom ask me why it doesn't work on her phone... or mine... Why on earth is image search geo locked to US only ? Where's the logic !?

    Apple doesn't know how to filter nsfw contents in other languages than English and that is not working to well either ;-)
