Google today updated its Goggles visual search product to version 1.7 for the Android platform. The new version's most important feature is a continuous focusing mode, which negates the need to actually take a picture. Simply point the application at the subject and Goggles will begin searching for what it sees automatically. Google recommends using this feature with books, products, artwork, and landmarks. Goggles 1.7 also adds better text recognition support, and can deliver search results based in snippets of text. Last, Google says the new version delivers better results based on user submissions, and Google continues to accept user suggestions for further refining the accuracy of results. Google Goggles 1.7 is available to all versions of Android, but Android 2.3 is required to use the continuous focusing mode.
