Video: Google Goggles Translation

Advertisement

Google Goggles is a really cool Android app that lets you use your camera to identify and search for all kinds of things. Brandon covered Google Goggles previously, but recently Google added a new feature: text translation.

Next time you find yourself in that fancy French restaurant and can’t read the menu, whip out your Android, fire up Google Goggles, and let Google do the translating for you.

Since some of you may not have seen Google Goggles in action, in the video below I’ll show you the more common uses first, and translation at the end (so if that’s the part you’re looking for, skip to the middle of the video, around the 6:30 mark).
