BOSTON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Wayfair Inc. (NYSE:W), one of the world’s largest online destinations for the home, today announced that its 3D visualization feature is now available to millions of consumers across the Android ecosystem. Built with ARCore, Google’s augmented reality platform, Wayfair’s “View in Room 3D” mobile app feature makes it possible for shoppers to see virtual furniture and décor in their homes before they buy.
“At Wayfair, we’re continually developing innovative technology features that make shopping for your home - from your home - not just easier, but preferred,” noted Steve Conine, co-founder and co-chairman, Wayfair. “Leveraging augmented reality, the Wayfair app allows shoppers to transform their homes into virtual showrooms, allowing them to see their favorite products up close and at every angle – all in their very own space. We’re excited to make this innovative capability available to our customers across tens of millions of Android devices.”
To visualize furniture and décor in their home, shoppers can simply tap “View in Room 3D” in the Wayfair mobile shopping app. All 3D products are at full scale and anchor to the floor, so shoppers can see a variety of life-size products in their home without having to grab the measuring tape.
