Google have today announced that their recently updated Google Product Search for Android now includes barcode scanning support.
As the Android web browser doesn’t support barcode scanning natively, the Barcode Scanner app is required and can be download free from the Android Market.
Today, barcode scanning works best for products like electronics, books, movies or video games, but we’re working on adding more barcodes for other items. Of course, if your scan does not return a result, you can always type in the product name just as before.
The bardcode scanning functionality for Product Search is currently only available in the US and UK.
