Snap Introduces New Shopping Experience with Catalog-Powered AR Lenses
Snap recently announced the rollout of Catalog-powered Shopping Lenses, a major upgrade to AR shopping, to make AR shopping simpler and more engaging for consumers, and easier to build, scale, and optimize for brands.
The new features include a simplified, more useful AR try-on shopping interface which enables Snapchatters to quickly see product info like prices, descriptions, and unique URLs to purchase with new Lens Product Cards as they try on products. For brands, the updates focus on providing real-time results, such as instant feedback on which products are the most popular. Additionally, Snap is expanding the Lens Web Builder, allowing beauty brands to create Shopping Lenses in as fast as two minutes.
