Videos and recipe information now accessible via image search

As per the left panel in the call-out image, Google today changed its documentation for videos (http://bit.ly/2ufOBDO) with the addition of the following sentence:

Your video rich results can also display in image search on mobile devices, providing users with useful information about your video.

As per the the test results I've provided in the same panel I can verify this is the case: clicking on an image result for which there is an associated video returns a card where video details and a "Watch" button are provided. On Android, clicking the "Watch" button launches the video in the YouTube app.

I've not yet seen a non-YouTube result, but the prerequisite for this functionality is seemingly only the correct structured data markup (which YouTube videos posses), so there appears to be no reason why non-YouTube videos aren't eligible for this rich image search result.

+Barry Schwartz you reported a test of this sort of functionality in January (http://selnd.com/2ufHlrD) but I don't know if the test reappeared, or if this functionality was ever officially rolled out and announced (I think not).

As per the right portion of the call-out image, the recipe documentation (http://bit.ly/2fTbCB7) now features a similar addition:

Rich results can also appear in image search on mobile devices, providing users with useful information about your recipe.

I had thought this was a long-standing feature, but - as I can't find any references to recipe rich results in image search - perhaps this is new as well (perhaps I was thinking of products - http://selnd.com/2ufZ6qP).
