Google Goggles Now a Reality - Download Today!

google_goggleWe just learned of the new Visual Search from Google over the weekend, but it turns out the search service is ready to go!  Forget that waiting period we were expecting while Google employees tested the app out.  Apparently, they’ve been playing with this for months now.

Head to the Android Market and download Google Goggles and get in on the new way of searching.  Using your camera phone, you can snap a picture of books, landmarks, artwork, places, contact information get Google results instantly.  Yes, it’s free!  Perhaps it’s the skeptic in us but we tried this out a couple of times and found the app to be considerably more accurate than expected. 

There’s a handy video that helps users understand what works well and what doesn’t.  This will be one app we’re going to enjoy watching evolve!
