New Google Goggles launched

Google focuses on mobile

Google has added a trio of new features to Goggles as it continues to concentrate on mobile search.

Launched in December 2009, Google Goggles is an app that enables mobile users to obtain search results from pictures taken on their smartphone camera. Users can take pictures of items such as text, logos, contact information and barcodes, and the service will then try to provide relevant information based on the query.

This week has seen the launch of the latest iteration, Google Goggles 1.7 for Android. The app, which is downloadable from Android Market, can be used by all Android devices. Google Goggles 1.7 introduces the following features:

Adrian Mursec, senior developer at theEword, commented: “Google has been making a big name for itself in mobile, with a raft of improvements for its Android operating system recently. The launch of Goggles 1.7 shows once again how Google is able to use its search background to enhance Android, and this is why it represents such a serious threat to the likes of Apple and BlackBerry.”
