The m-Commerce in India is booming and so is the blogging / writing industry. We read a lot of new things the companies are doing to make sure that the mobile commerce is easy to use for everyone. And when we think of mobile commerce, the first company which comes to our mind is flipkart.
And flipkart is leading the mobile commerce segment by making cool new stuff. First, making myntra app-only and now the rumor is that flipkart is going to be app only too but admist all this hustle, flipkart has launched an amazing feature in it’s app, The Image Search.
We all gathered at the HardRock Cafe bengaluru to witness this awesome feature. It started with an amazing performance by the Indiblogger team and followed by a couple of talking by the flipkart team.
We then got to demo this awesome feature. You just have to point at the cloth or the accessory and click it’s picture and search and voila, you will get the same or similar results. Yup, it doesn’t work with gadgets for you can define gadgets. This is only for apparels and accessories and rightly that’s where it makes sense.
It is indeed an amazing feature and useful too for finding the same kind of T-Shirt someone is wearing is much needed and we often struggle explaining and searching. But not anymore! I did try to find a T shirt exactly like mine and I was amazed with the results 🙂
Thankyou flipkart for thinking “out of the box” and thank you Indiblogger for yet another awesome meet. And yeah, Indiblogger did give away the “10 love stories” written by bloggers and published in association with HarperCollins and I was glad to receive the autographed copy by one of the writer, Dr. Debmita Dutta.
