No need to type your search anymore. Just take a picture.

google_gogglesTogether with the new search functions in real time from Google, the search engine for mobile devices also received new functionality – Google Goggles.

This is a new visual search app for Android phones which allows you to do searches in the network using the camera of your mobile device. Instead of using words, take a picture of an object with your camera phone-” we attempt to recognize the object, and return relevant search”. Shoot and ask Google:)

Google goggles landmark

Currently, Google Goggles feature can only be used by devices with Android 1.6 + and is available in Android market. Goggles are expected soon to be released for other popular platforms.

“Today Goggles recognizes certain images in certain categories, but our goal is to return high quality results for any image. Today you frame and snap a photo to get results, but one day visual search will be as natural as pointing a finger — like a mouse for the real world. Either way we’ve got plenty of work to do, so please download Goggles from Android Market and help us get started.”

Nice,  We’ll buy a pack of beers Googlz!
