Google Goggles-App

We all know about Google. One of the most popular search engines in the world which has also forayed to other services like email, Google +, Youtube, Google Maps etc. One of the many advantages of using Google Search is that it is fast and Indexes a large number of pages. It has also a news carousel for some searches. Apart from all this, Google also has an app called Google Goggles.

It is an app which allows you to  get some Information regarding the Image you take. Many times while travelling you might come across a building or a monument but you don’t know what it is. In that case one could simply take a picture. And using the Goggles app, it would give you the details of the location. Cool isn’t it?

It works somewhat like Google Images by searching for  similar Images which you upload. The only difference is that this can be used in the phone as an app. I am not sure whether you would have noticed, Google Images normally has the camera Icon in the Search bar. This is a functionality which allows one to upload an Image. And then search for similar Images. But unfortunately, this feature is only available for desktops and laptops. In smartphones, this camera Icon is missing.

Probably Google thought to make an App instead of the Google Images Search and that’s how they came up with this Idea.

Google Goggles is available for Android only.  And can be found in the Play Store  https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.google.android.apps.unveil&hl=en
