Voice search in eCommerce

Search is a very important component for many apps and services and especially so in eCommerce.

Voice offers many unique features that are not possible by using more traditional approaches, such as:

  • Learn the language your users are using of your products
  • Accessibility benefits for people who have difficulties using keyboard and mouse
  • Support users on the go
  • Intuitive user experience
  • No need to clutter the UI with filters

You can try the demo here.

Would be great to hear your thoughts! Would you use voice when browsing eCommerce sites? How would you improve the experience?

You can see a demo video of the experience below.
