Yesterday Snapchat announced that they are going to be slowly rolling out a new visual product search engine! They are going to be teaming up with Amazon.
The new feature will allow you to identify items and order them through Amazon. All you have to do is open Snapchat and point your camera at an item or the barcode and then an Amazon pop-up card will show you either that exact item or something similar to it. It will also show you the title, price, thumbnail image, average review score and Prime availability.
This feature will also allow you to buy products within an app! Lot of apps have been adding features similar to this so now Snapchat is getting in on the fun!
They are going to start by testing this feature out with a small amount of Snapchat users in the U.S.
This feature could be really useful for when you like a product but aren't really sure what the name of it is, like a specific pair of shoes or something. I honestly think that this is a really cool feature and I think that I would use it a lot!
What do you think? aWould you actually use this new feature?
