The social networking application Snapchat has developed the visual search capabilities and expanded its scope by updating the application’s “Scan” function.
It has been reported that the “scan” feature has been part of the popular app for a while as a way to identify songs or solve a math problem. But the new update makes the “Scan” function an essential part of the Snapchat application due to the presence of a button on the home page of the application with the addition of more functions that can be performed using “Scan”.
It is noteworthy that the “Scan” function can help the user to know the wearing style that a particular outfit represents when pointing the smartphone’s camera at him, and this function can also advise on the accessories and additions that can be used with it. are worn clothes. The “Scan” function can also identify the dog breed or types of plants through the image.
The website “Cnet.com”, which specializes in technology problems, had indicated that “Snapchat” hopes that the “Scan” function will improve the possibilities of visual search, as is the case in the “Google Lens” service. This feature also uses augmented reality technology and works with several partners, such as: Amazon and Shazam, to help identify as many different types of visual input as possible.
And because Snapchat is primarily a visual social media app, the Scan feature can also recognize the type of photo the user is taking and recommend the right filter or music for that photo.
