"Today, we launched a new version of Google Goggles that enhances the camera on your Android-powered phone."

The new version of Goggles can now identify things in photos you've already taken. This means that fancy door you took a photo of on vacation can now be automatically linked up to more information about it. A knowledge junkie's delight!

The World Looks Better Through Google Goggles: Now With More Oooooo!

"Since its launch, we have worked to make Google Goggles faster and more accurate when returning search results for a wide variety of images. Today, we are taking several steps to make Goggles a better and more personal experience."

The latest update to Google Goggles brings quite a few improvements to better personalize your Google Oogling. Goggles version 1.4 brings with it new features like being able to share your search results, tag your search history with notes to better help you organize the stuff you find, and the ability to submit suggestions to help improve Goggles when it has trouble recognizing your picture. If that weren't enough Google even threw in better business card recognition to help save you time when you meet a new business contact. So what are you waiting for? Go get your Goggles on and start Googling!

New Goggles Version Takes on Puzzles

"The new Goggles 1.3 client for Android can scan barcodes almost instantly. All versions of Goggles can now recognize print ads in popular magazines and newspapers. Finally, Goggles has also learned a fun new trick for Sudoku fans."

Google released a new version of Google Goggles and has added some very cool new features. It can now recognize all mainstream print ads since August 2010 and solve Sudoku puzzles! Apparently it's faster too which is always a nice touch. I had to test the Sudoku solving so I went to www.websudoku.com. Google Goggles managed to conquer an "evil" difficulty puzzle in about 3 seconds on my Droid X. It's even cool to watch it populate the empty boxes:) Google Goggles is a tool I've had on my phone for a long time that I know I don't use enough. I often forget how much it can do, like translation and business card scanning. What's the coolest thing you've used it for? Have you tried any national monuments or things you really didn't expect it to recognize?
