Google Goggles has certainly been one of the better mobile applications that was released by the Internet search giant over the past two years, being pretty proficient at what it is supposed to do – that is, identify the object that you point at it with your phone’s camera. Well, Google didn’t rest on their laurels, coming up with a couple of interesting features that might just have it leap to the next level. The first feature would be its ability to recognize print ads, letting you point your smartphone at an ad and Google will be able to recognize the brand or product, returning the right results for it. According to Google, this will happen with major US newspaper and magazine ads from August last year onwards.
As for the other, those who have a penchant for Sudoku will find its newfound ability awesome – here’s what Google has to say about it.
Our favorite weekend distraction is a quiet 15 minutes spent solving a Sudoku puzzle. But even that can be an frustrating experience if (like us) you make a mistake and are unable to solve the puzzle. Now, Goggles on Android and iPhone can recognize puzzles and provide answers to help make you faster than a Sudoku champ. So if you ever get stuck, take a clear picture of the entire puzzle with Goggles and we’ll tell you the correct solution. Check out this video to see how it works.
