Google Goggles on Android updated to read print ads, solve Suduko puzzles

 Google Goggles on Android received an update to 1.three on Monday. In addition to speed fixes for barcode scanning and the capacity to recognize magazine print ads, Google Goggles can now give Sukoku players a cheat ... or rather, treat.


Right here are the modifications, as noted in Google's weblog post:

Barcodes

In Android version 1.three of Google Goggles, scanning barcodes is a lot more quickly. It must take only a second, the business said. When you do that, Goggles will give you the resultant bar code, which you can then tap to read product testimonials, examine costs, and even check in-retailer availability.

Print ads in magazines and newspapers

Take a picture of a newspaper or magazine ad from an issue August 2010 or newer, and Goggles will recognize the ad and return seach outcomes about the item or brand. Because they put in that line about August 2010 or later, that means a person (or a lot more than one) at Google need to have been spending time scanning ads into a database, from August of final year, onwards. Not the most fascinating perform, we would consider.

Sudoku

The final gimmick added to Google Goggles is the capability to solve Sudoku puzzles. We have in no way been that excellent at Sudoku, but we attempted the new feature on a puzzle, and not only did it recognize the puzzle as a Sudoku game, it solved it as effectively. Admittedly we had it set on "easy mode."
