Google Goggles Arrives on iPhone 4 and 3GS

Google provided an update to the Goolge App yesterday on the iPhone. A new feature added to the Google App includes Google Goggles that allows you to take a picture of an object and have Google scan and recognise what it is.

The Googles service has been on Android devices for several months now and this is the first time you have been able to run it on your iPhone.

Rather than downloading it as a single application, you now just load up the Google App and when doing a search you can now hit a camera icon that is situated next to the voice icon.

You then take a picture and Google scans and recognises the image and provides search results based on what it sees.

Accuracy isn’t amazing from what we have found in that a number of objects photographed a few moments ago were either not recognised, or were listed as being something entirely different, but when it does work it works quite well. Perhaps we were just capturing objects that were not unique enough?

Right now it only works on the iPhone 3GS and the iPhone 4, so grab it if you want to have a test.
