Google has been hard at work updating its mobile applications as of late. Yesterday, the search giant updated its mobile browser Chrome for the iPhone, now it’s delivering an update to its Google Goggles application for Android devices. New Google Goggles features include support for devices that don’t have autofocus cameras, which is perfect for low-end smartphones.
Moreover, the application brings faster and better tracking of objects when in continuous mode, and the search-from-camera feature no longer needs to have Search History enabled for it to work. Goggles also improves its QR-scanning abilities, and will show a thumbnail if the QR code has an embedded URL, will scan URLs against known malicious links, and can read much more bar codes. Lastly, Google Goggles adds search results that appear similar to the subject if it can’t find an exact match.
