CNET Editors' review
We tip our hat to Google for creating a novel mobile app that uses pictures to prompt a search, not just text or vocal input. When you take a photo through Goggles, the free app scans the image, matching your picture against its database and returning a result. Goggles can read bar codes, landmarks, logos, books and DVDs, signs, and products. Things like plants still give Goggles trouble, and results aren't always consistent scan to scan. As Goggles is still a product of Google Labs, it's more experimental than fully baked. But it's a good experiment, and one that's sure to save you some typing.
With Google Goggles for Android no need to type your search, just take a picture. Find out what businesses are nearby. Just point your phone at a store. Turn on visual search history to view or share your pictures at any time. Turn it off to discard them once the search is done. Goggles can also recognize English, French, Italian, German, and Spanish words and allow you to translate into other languages.
What's new in this version: Version 1.6.1 search from the camera you can now set up Google Goggles to automatically run on photos taken with your camera app and Goggles can now respond to barcode intents.
