Last month our team liked the new update to Ebay caled ‘Image Search as well as the exciting Amazon Echo Show and the brand new smartphone from Razer.
Ebay have now introduced ‘Image Search’, if you have previously heard of Pinterest’s ‘Visual Search’ then you may be aware of the concept. Ebay have now unveiled their new feature to the app, simply take a picture or pull up an existing photo from your camera roll of something that you like and this will produce an ebay search of the exact match or similar items. So if you have seen an item in a shop or in a picture that you like but want to find it online and are unaware of the name, then this is ideal for you. This feature has been rolled out onto both the Android and Apple app.
