Cool, Twitter, Facebook, and MySpace results will be included in Google's Real-Time Search.

Are they rolling it out today, or merely announcing? On demand or by default?

If the latter, I'm not sure what generalized realtime search would accomplish. For a sample of realtime search withing just one, limited-scope, social network, try this:

friendfeed.com/search?q=google

(press the "||" pause button to pause)

They're rolling it out over the next couple days. It will be included by default, but it will be almost like a "real-time one box" and if you click it you can go to a full SERP with real-time results popping in...

Another announcement earlier in the webcast was Google Goggles available in Google Labs today...

Now it's here:

<< Google Goggles lets you search Google using pictures from your camera phones. We take an image as input, and using several image recognition backends (object recognition, OCR, face matching, etc), we return relevant search results. >>

Earlier, they also announced a new version of Mobile Voice Search with some neat location based features, and also Google Mobile Maps which looks pretty cool... It lets you long-press anywhere on the map and a list pops up of "nearby places".

Here's the official blog post for Google's Real-Time Search:

<< Our real-time search features are based on more than a dozen new search technologies that enable us to monitor more than a billion documents and process hundreds of millions of real-time changes each day. Of course, none of this would be possible without the support of our new partners that we're announcing today: Facebook, MySpace, FriendFeed, Jaiku and Identi.ca — along with Twitter, which we announced a few weeks ago.

The new features will be rolling out in the next few days and will be available globally in English. You can try them out today by visiting Google Trends and clicking on a "hot topic," which in most cases will bring you to a search results page with the new real-time feature. >>

Why in the world is nobody complaining that google is using artificial scrollbars, whereas google itself has sometimes complained that sites should stick with as much basic html as possible (in other words, I find these toolbars disgusting). Still I don't see it for myself here... hmm...
