Google Shopping Gets New Visual Overhaul on Desktop
Google is updating its online shopping features on desktop with a new focus on visual elements including an increased focus on product images.
The company released a screenshot as an example so you can see how product search results start with a row of thumbnail images.
As users scroll down the page, they will also see details about pricing, user reviews, and ratings for specific products included in the result,
When clicked on, the product listings bring up a panel with more information and links to purchase the product from different retailers.
Most importantly, the panel does not interrupt your browsing process and users can immediately resume shopping from where they left off.
As before, users can also filter product results using a number of categories including brand, type, retailer, and discounted products.
The announcement says about the overhaul:
“Whether you’re looking for clothes, electronics, beauty products or home goods on desktop, you’ll see a more visual feed of shopping results that includes products, brands, articles and videos from across the web.”
Additionally, Google says these product results and search filters are all dynamic, so they will continuously be updated to include the newest products, popular retailers, and up-to-the-minute discounts.
The new Google shopping update is already rolling out to all users and should be available to everyone within the next few days.
