Google Goggles Comes to the iPhone


Google yesterday announced that it has updated its Google Mobile App to include the company's Google Goggles feature that allows users to search by taking pictures.

Back in December we introduced Google Goggles on Android: it lets you search by taking pictures. Today, we're excited to announce that Goggles is now a feature of Google Mobile App for iPhone. Google Mobile App already lets you speak your queries, and it can also use your phone's location to give you more relevant search results.

In the new version of Google Mobile App just tap on the camera button to search using Goggles. Goggles will analyze the image and highlight the objects it recognizes -- just click on them to find out more.

Because the Google Goggles feature requires an auto-focusing camera, it is only available for the iPhone 4 and 3GS, with iOS 4 or later required.

Google had announced in June that Google Goggles would be coming soon to the iPhone.
