Updated Google Goggles now searches every picture you take when you opt-in
According to Google, the new version of Google Goggles available in the Android Market makes your smartphone's camera "smarter". Using a new opt-in feature, Google Goggles can now search through all of your photos, not just the ones that you take with the app. If anything appears on the picture that is "recognized" by the application, you are told via a notification.

Using the camera on your Android phone as your main "shooter" during a vacation, you can find out many interesting facts about places you visit, or the sites that you see, all of which can be shared with your friends using your Goggles search history. To opt-in and allow Google Goggles to search all of your pictures, first you need to open the app. Once that is done you tap on Menu, hit Settings and click on Search From Camera.

For those who never downloaded the app, you can do so now for free from the Android Market.

Is anyone else having the problem where they cannot opt out of the update to Goggles? I have a OG and limited space and do not want this on my phone...

i have removed every part of it that I can, but some things you can't remove unless you root your phone. and, as indicated, I have an OG (Original Droid). There is no 'Uninstall" next to the update. Just open or update. *Annoyed*

If you don't want it, you could just delete it completely. If you want to opt out of updates you would have to list what kind of phone you have; there are plently of people who go through this site that could help you.
