Google Goggles: Conduct a Google Search Using Pictures (Android Phone)

Ads by Google

Google Goggles is a new app for Android phones that lets you do a Google search using pictures taken from your mobile phone. The app integrates with the cellphone camera and lets you take pictures of books & DVDs, landmarks, logos, contact info, artwork, businesses, products, barcodes, or text and then conduct a visual search. You can also turn on ‘visual search history’ that enables you to view the photos you took and lets you share them with friends.

The app has been currently released under Google Labs and hence is far from perfect. However, Google promises that it will evolve into a better tool that’d enable Android phone users to click just about anything using their cellphones and get accurate information. It certainly would be a huge time saver for Android users .
