Google Goggles v1.7.1 for Android

Google Goggles, the visual search application, is updated to version 1.7.1 for any device with Android 2.1 or higher, with improvements in Continuous Mode and recognition text in a document and return a link to its online version.

Instead of using words, take a picture of an object with your camera phone: we attempt to recognize the object, and return relevant search results. Goggles can also recognize English, French, Italian, German and Spanish words and allow you to translate to other languages.


  • Scan barcodes and QR codes
  • Recognize famous landmarks
  • Translate by taking a picture of foreign language text
  • Add Contacts by scanning business cards or QR codes
  • Scan text using Optical Character Recognition
  • Recognize paintings, books, dvd, cds, and just about any 2D image
  • Solve Sudoku puzzles

Changelog v1.7.1:

  1. Don’t store inaccurate locations for queries in search history.
  2. Show the description field for user-submitted results.
  3. Don’t crash when loading large bitmaps.
  4. Performance improvements in continuous mode.
