Google updated its Google Image best practices to specify that images referenced in structured data must be in one of the image file formats that are supported by Google Images. These formats include BMP, GIF, JPEG, PNG, WebP, and SVG.
As Kenichi Suzuki put it “You can now use all the image formats Google Image supports (BMP, GIF, JPEG, PNG, WebP, SVG) in Structured Data.”
Gary Illyes from Google clarified it took a while to confirm which image file types were supported but they did it:
took a while to figure this out, but finally we’re there! if you run into problems with images in structured data, please leave feedback through the feedback tool and either @LizziHarvey or i will look.
(just try to be descriptive. “it doesn’t work” is not good feedback) https://t.co/5HUsshGlgp
