In a rather Pinterest-esque move, Snap Inc. appears to be joining forces with Amazon on a new visual search feature, with product results powered by the e-commerce giant’s marketplace.
The feature, tipped in the code of an upcoming Android Snapchat update reported by TechCrunch earlier this week, presumably works when Snapchatters use their camera to search products or scan barcodes. Users see a pop-up with verbiage stating, “Press and hold to identify an object, song, barcode, and more! This works by sending data to Amazon, Shazam, and other partners.”
“I’m looking forward to jumping into the creative process and exploring fashion through a different lens,” said actor Michael B. Jordan exclusively to WWD about becoming the first face of @coach ‘s men’s business.
