Walmart will launch the View in Your Home augmented reality platform on its flagship mobile app in 2022, allowing shoppers to see their product selections in AR before purchasing. Now the retailer is expanding his View in Your Home service with new AR features.
Shoppers can now place multiple items in the room in front of them on their device screen through augmented reality to create a complete look of their space before purchasing a product.
The app’s catalog of AR-enabled products has expanded to over 7,000 items spanning indoor and outdoor furniture, electronics, lighting options, and more.
The View in Your Home platform now provides product recommendations to shoppers based on items that work well in their space. When a shopper views an item in her AR, she can use the platform’s Similar Items feature to swap items to see the size and shape of each and decide which one is best for her environment.
Once the selection is complete, the shopper can purchase an entire room’s worth of merchandise with a single tap.
These new AR features are rolling out to the Walmart app for iPhone users.
