Google is making an effort to make shopping for clothes easy by letting you buy fashion products including clothes, shoes, and accessories directly on the Google Search page itself. The new search tool will help users compare choices, get inspiration and finally, decide what to buy without leaving the Search page.
How it works
The new Google Search feature can help you find a particular clothing item and identify popular products from stores across the web. You will then be able to filter through the listed items by department, style, and size and when you’re done selecting you can choose to buy from one of the retailers from their relevant links.
The new tool also displays reviews and ratings to help you find products that have received good feedback. Google has explained that the new search tool has been made possible indexing and organizing products from over a million online shops. These products are then updated on a regular basis for pricing and availability details.
The Mountain View giant has also promised that it won’t charge sites to be part of the new Search feature. Retailers who wish to get their products listed on the service can participate in the program for free.
