Pinterest has announced that it is launching a new visual search tool and the company says that this new tool is designed to help you find stuff that your cannot describe using words.
The new visual search tool lets you search for similar items using an image rather than words, the company explains how it works below.
When you spot something in a Pin that you want to learn more about, tap the search tool in the corner. Then select the part of the Pin you’re interested in, and we’ll show you Pins just like it. You can even filter your visual search results by topic so you find exactly what you’re looking for.
So if you zoom in on that lamp, you can discover what it’s called (“Antiqued Metal Funnel Pendant”), and where you can find it (Restoration Hardware). If you want to know more—like how to get a table like that—just resize your selection and move it around to instantly see more Pins.
You can find out more information about this new visual search tool from Pinterest over at their website at the link below, it will be available later today.
