As far as I know, you cannot know the exact date because Google only publishes the year when the data was collected (as displayed in the lower right corner of the image).

... but only in low zoomlevels on the website. I don't see that in the openlayers plugin. – AndreJ Feb 18 '14 at 9:52
Google Earth will go down to month/year but not actual date. – Mapperz Feb 18 '14 at 14:32
