Google has updated its shopping experience for users in time for the holidays. Now at Google Shopping, users can access new products details and get a better look at the products they’re contemplating to buy – 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.
And don’t forget shortlists, Google said, to help you curate the products you’re considering, and fors haring 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.
And if you’re curious about what kids products are trending, Google listed the top toy searches on Google Shopping:
- Rainbow Loom
- Minecraft Legos
- Monster High Sets
- Doc McStuffins Playsets
- Nerf Rebelle Heartbreaker Bow Blaster
Google also noted search interest is showing that some toys you likely remember from your childhood are popular once again this year, including:
- My Little Pony
- Barbie Dreamhouse
- Ninja Turtles
- Easy-Bake Oven
