I'll admit I never really use Google Goggles a lot but as Google continues to update the app and add new features, they're making some compelling arguments that give me reasons to use it. The latest update adds an opt-in photo recognition feature.
With it, you can snap a picture using your devices camera, Google will then scan the image for landmarks, paintings and other interesting objects. Once scanned, if anything is identified it will then offer up information and details about what you just took a picture of.
Pretty awesome! Although, now I just want to go around the city scanning everything and seeing what information is available. The update is available now in the Android Market and the download can be found past the break.
