@Adoubleagent shared a photo (well, multiple) on Twitter of Google showing not just a single featured snippet image but multiple images in the featured snippet. I don't believe I've seen multiple images in a featured snippet and for the life of me, I cannot replicate this. But I had him send me several examples and he is out of the US, and able to trigger it there.
Here is one of his screen shots:
Can you replicate this?
Is this new?
I've seen Google show image blocks at the top like this but not within the featured snippet. Maybe this is showing two different things here? One is an image block and the other is a featured snippet and they are independent?
