    Google India launches shopping search experience for Indian users

     

    The new experience will allow users to easily filter through offers, review prices from multiple retailers and find the products they are looking for, Google said.

    Surojit Chatterjee, Vice President - Product Management, Google said, "More than 40 million Indians are coming online every year, and search is an integral part of their online journey. From seasoned desktop shoppers to first-time users with entry-level smartphones, we hope this new shopping experience will make finding what people are looking for just a little bit easier."

    Google said that the new 'Shopping Homepage' is a made-to-browse destination for shoppers to search across multiple product categories and browse products from thousands of retailers.

    The company has also added, smart features like price drops and a collection of the most popular products. The experience will also be available as a Progressive Web App (PWA) for users with entry-level phones.

    Furthermore, the 'Shopping Tab' in Google Search will allow users to post queries in Hindi and English and show product lists, local store inventory and review prices from across multiple retailers.

    This experience is available across several Google products: a made-to-browse experience on the Shopping home page, the Shopping tab on Google Search and in Google Lens.

    Finally, Style Search in Google Lens is an all-new visual approach to find products such as clothes, furniture, and home decor, by simply pointing the Lens app.

    Speaking about the offerings for retailers, Surojit said, "With this launch, our aim is to support the entire retail ecosystem, from shopping sites and large retailers to small local shops, and give them the tools, technology, and scale to thrive in today's digital economy."

    According to the Sixth Economic Census, there are 58 million SMBs in India of which 35 percent are engaged in retail trade. However, a very small number of them have an online presence -- clearly highlighting a huge opportunity for retailers to surface their merchandise to the millions of online consumers.
