Thoughts on Snap’s Visual Search feature?

Snap’s feature of scanning physical objects and getting Amazon url for the same is pretty cool. Other products like Google Goggles and Amazon Fire Phone have tried that in the past but maybe the tech wasn’t upto the mark then.

What else do you think could be different?

    Seems to be made out as more convenient than it really is. I don't see myself using it at all.

      Do you think someone obsessed with latest fashion will use it?

      Doubtful. Fashion obsessed folks are looking at celebrities and models, not everyday joes.

    It’s pretty cool. Probably won’t use it often but I’m always in the snap app anyway so it’s convenient. Well done snap team

      I can agree that it's well done. I can't agree that it's nearly as monetizable as they seem to believe it to be. I also don't think they actually believe in it. Seems like a last try before admitting defeat before they sell the organization.
