In 2009, Google has announced its new search feature at Computer History Museum, and in this Search feature Google announced an innovative idea: “Now users can search information by just taking picture with mobile phones or spoken words instead of typing keywords.” As we have already seen Real-Time result in Google’s search page, which includes Twitter integration. Google claims to be the first to do this. However, there are other services like Collecta, One Riot and Crowdeye, which provide Real Time Search results. It has two sections like Visual search and Voice search. If you are a real internet surfer then it is necessary to know all these facts. Visual search is where search queries are made of pictures instead of words. Google Voice Search was a tool from Google Labs which allowed someone to use their phone to make a Google query.

When the user called (650) 623-6706, the number of Google Voice’s search system, they will wait for the words Say your Search Keywords and then say the keywords. Afterwards, they have to wait to have the page updated, or click on a link to bring up the search page the user requested. You can say that its an experimental Version available for Mobile Users, and they termed it as “Google Goggles”. If the user is viewing a product or a thing and requires more information about it, then take a snap and search it in your mobile with Google Goggles. Such actions will make your decision more precise and easy. Google finds different ways of making sure that search gets better and user friendly each day. As per my view, this feature which is still under experimental phase is turning out to be a milestone for making search engines more users friendly. One can say that it acts like a personal assistance.
