Your time is precious. Why should you waste it taking photos with Google Goggles to enable a search? Starting today, you don't have too.
Until today's update, Google's all-knowing visual search app only worked if you took photos of items. See a painting you like, take a picture of it, and it tells you the artist and the title. Take a photo of a barcode and Goggles will give you product information. Continuous Mode, the best part of today's Googles update, does away with that cumbersome step — most of the time. Google says that the new mode works best with books, products, artwork and landmarks. Translating text and adding contacts won't work with Continuous Mode.
