The Home Depot App Now Includes Augmented Reality
Knowing when to upgrade certain parts of your house is fairly easy. But deciding which products to update them with is tougher than it seems. We can always see new pretty things that we like on stores; but it’s really hard to imagine what they will look like after being installed. So a mobile app with Augmented Reality for Home Depot products can be an amazing help.
Augmented Reality and The Home Depot Shopping App
The augmented reality feature works for patio furniture, vanities, doors, faucets and a lot of other products from Home Depot stores. Download the The Home Depot Mobile App from their website.
The app uses your phone’s camera and augmented reality to place the virtual item into the real world you’re watching through your screen. It allows you to resize and rotate the image so it can fit and you can even share a picture with someone else via Twitter, Facebook or email.
You just need to open de app in your smartphone and point the camera to the item you want to replace and see how it would really look like in your home.You will be able to see, test and shop thousands of different products. If you like something on its picture, tap in the “see this in your home” tab to see how it fits and buy it if you want to.
The Mobile Shopping Revolution And Augmented Reality
The Home Depot already had a huge success with its shopping mobile app. The app allows customers to find products inside the stores faster than before thanks to augmented reality, real-time inventory and visual search. The Home Depot App has the ability to sense when the customer enters one of the stores and it activates the in-store mode, allowing them to find any item at the exact place they are.
Smartphones are getting bigger, tablets are getting smaller and people using them both is raising to new records every day. So mobile shopping is a necessity and an opportunity now more than ever. Home Depot taking advantage from this new potential market will definitely report good results in the future.
The Home Depot is also an Online Giant
According to a study from Forrester and RetailMeNot, 60% of shoppers who buy things online only have two retailer apps, and 21% of them don’t even have one. Shoppers require speed, personalization and convenience, but if a retailer can deliver nice mobile app experiences, it will definitely pay off.
The Home Depot had 1.5 billion visits on its website last year; almost half of the visits came from smartphones and tables. The home improvement retailer had 941,000 web page views from mobiles in just an hour during the Black Friday.
Money spending from mobiles spiked 59% in November and December 2015. And last Valentine’s Day, customers made most of their last-minute purchases from their mobile devices.
