Google says it will open its Google Goggles visual search application program interfaces, allowing third-party developers to use the feature when building their own apps.

Currently, Android users can take pictures of various objects and Google Goggles will help identify them. Items that Goggles can identify include buildings, bridges, landmarks, bar codes, logos, text, business cards and product info for things like books and DVDs.

The new API means Goggles features will be available for apps running on the Apple iPhone, for example.
