Snapchat AR Shopping Tools for the Future
Online shopping has become not just a trend but especially convenient during the pandemic. Many are drawn to try online shopping in recent years because of the ease. Although it has existed in earlier years, today's lifestyles have brought more awareness to shopping in the convenience of our own homes. And new technology has provided the answer to repairing that significant disparity in the purchasing experience between physical shopping and online shopping.
The shoppers’ experience
One of the major advantages of physical shopping is the experience itself. This is probably the only one lacking for online shopping to be more preferred by many. Without being able to see, touch, or try on the products, many meet disappointments after purchasing something online.
Today, augmented reality technology has the potential to alleviate many negative online shopping experiences. Developers have identified significant potential in the capacity of AR technology to merge real-life and virtual goods in real-world environments to provide a better and more engaging shopping experience for customers.
Snapchat’s new AR tools

It is no longer just for entertainment, as it was when AR first began. Snapchat has updated many augmented reality tools that could help transform the way people shop.
