Google Introduces QR Code for Mobile View of 3D Product Results
Recently, we noted that Google started displaying 3D product photos for desktop searches in addition to those conducted on mobile devices.
Now, Google is experimenting with displaying a QR code that the searcher may scan with their smartphone to rapidly view the object in 3D, as doing so on desktop devices is challenging.
A screenshot of the QR code that appears after clicking on a product was shared on Twitter by Brian Freiesleben. The text on the label reads, “Scan the QR code with your mobile phone camera to view the item in your space.” In this manner, augmented reality can be used in your environment to view the 3D product image.
Wow, so I was just added into this test again, and I saw a new update to this feature for 3D/AR on desktop,” Brian remarked. Google is experimenting with displaying a QR code that you may use your mobile device’s camera to scan in order to examine the object in your vicinity. Interesting.”
Google has handled this feature on desktops in a shrewd manner in doing so.
