LAZADA has turned into a brand which has become synonymous with e-commerce and online shopping in Malaysia as well as the Southeast Asian region. The company is one of the largest e-commerce platforms in the region and has continued to show growth. To empower their growth further, the company has continually been updating their app and websites with more offerings and features to provide a better overall user experience.
The newest feature to come to the app is an artificial intelligence (AI) powered image search function. This function allows shoppers to simply take a picture of the item they are looking for and the LAZADA app will search and surface similar items available on the platform. This new feature will enable users to look for the best offers on LAZADA while shopping offline. All shoppers will have to do is snap a picture and they will be able to get similar items on LAZADA for a price comparison.
Using the Image Search function is pretty simple in app. All shoppers will have to do is tap on the “Scan” icon on the top left of the app’s homepage. This will bring up the image search interface. Once in, shoppers just have to snap or upload a picture of the item they’re looking to buy. Once this is done, LAZADA will do the rest and bring up the results. The same scan function can also be used to scan QR codes which can take shoppers directly to great deals or seller pages within the app. The scan feature is only available on the LAZADA mobile app.
