Some time ago I tried to solve sudokus using goggles and it worked. But today I've been recognizing several sudokus, and goggles says "it's a sudoku" and performs a google search for me, but I don't have the solving feature anymore.

Is it a matter of versions? Do I have to adjust any setting?

Yes, it does. After scanning the Sudoku it should present you with multiple results, one recognized as a Sudoku puzzle, one recognized as an object, and one recognized as text. You'll want to select the Sudoku puzzle result and then select 'Solve' on the next screen that comes up.

This was just verified on v1.9.4

  • Thanks, I've updated to v1.9.4 and now I have the "solve" button. But I receive an error 500 when I click that.

  • Have you tried going to the Application Manager and clearing data for Google Search? I've had a few apps that refused to work properly after an update unless i did this.

  • Oh! Looking at the address bar, it looks that the sudoku is solved, but somehow it cannot be displayed! This is the full address bar content: http://www.google.com/goggles/a/sudoku?original=530070000600195000098000060800060003400803001700020006060000280000419005000080079&solved=534678912672195348198342567859761423426853791713924856961537284287419635345286179&solutionOnly=y
