Google is back on its shopping spree and rumor has it that is is looking at purchasing an Augmented reality and facial recognition software company called Viewdle.
If you recall I reported in June that Facebook purchased an Israeli company Face.com that allows its users to automatically tag people based on their pictures.
Google has clearly recognised that this is a feature that users want and is currently missing across all their platforms including Android and Google+.
As Viewdle is also an Augmented reality company, we could see enhanced services running on top of Google’s mapping services too.
We wait in anticipation
