Google Goggles updated, bye bye shutter key

Google Goggles, application that uses image recognition to recognize a picture is updated to 1.7 and this update brings in a mega feature. Dubbed 'Continuous Mode', Goggles can now scan all the objects/image that are in focus without the need to press shutter mode. In short you need not take a picture of the object to scan it. Goggles scans it as soon as it gets a focus on the object. As can be seen from the above picture, as you move along, Goggles scans objects and reveal information on those objects. Another significant features it that Goggles can now read text in a document and then provide a link to the original version (if it is online). Here's a list of updates mentioned by Google:

  1. Continuous Mode allows you to use Goggles without pressing the shutter button
  2. Goggles can recognize text in a document and return a link to its online version. Try it on your favorite newspaper!
  3. You can help Goggles recognize more objects. Tap on 'Do you have a better suggestion' in the Goggles results page.
  4. Google Goggles will now show user submitted results in the search results page.
