Google Goggles 1.6 Released with New Search Feature

Wanna make your Android phone’s camera smarter?  Download the latest version of Google Goggles 1.6 and enable the new “search from camera” feature.  Once done, go about your business, using the camera like you normally would.  Once turned on, this option will have Goggles working in the background, analyzing your photos as you take them.

Let’s say you take a picture with a landmark in the background.  Goggles will tell you that the big bridge in the background actually has a name.  Goggles will return results for you as it identifies landmarks, paintings, brand names, and other known objects in your photos.  After that, it’s all about learning and sharing your results!

Google Goggles 1.6 is free to download on any Android device running 2.1 and above.  Yep, tablets, too.[app]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Hhgfz0zPmH4&feature=player_embedded[/app]
