New Google Shopping features allow consumers to view product details with ease across devices - including an expansion of a feature that provides a 360-degree view of certain products on Google Shopping.
Google has updated its shopping experience for users in time for the holidays. Now at Google Shopping, users can access new product details, keep track of items they're interested in with Shortlists, and get a better look at the products they’re contemplating purchasing, no matter what device they’re on.
Google explained the functionality in its announcement:
“Click on a product to preview details like sizes, colors and description, and find out if it’s available at a nearby local store. If you see an item that’s almost perfect but not quite, click to view 'visually similar' items.”
Google Shopping also has a 360-degree product tour for many of its items, to help make the online shopping experience a bit more realistic.
Don’t forget Shortlists, Google said, to help you curate the products you’re considering, and for sharing those ideas with family and friends to help them shop better, too.
“Your shortlist now also stays with you at the top of each page while you browse Google Shopping, so you can keep track of items as you go,” Google said in its announcement.
