Google has added a new service for its Google Android mobile platform called Google Goggles.
Google Goggles is a new visual search technology that lets you take a photo of something with your Android mobile phone, and then search for information on the web using the picture you took.
A picture is worth a thousand words.No need to type your search anymore. Just take a picture.
Find out what businesses are nearby.Just point your phone at a store.
This is just the beginning – it’s not quite perfect yet.Works well for some things, but not for all.
Your pictures, your control.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.
Here is a video of Google Goggles in action which explains exactly how the new service works.
