Pinterest-logo

Pinterest is rolling out a rather nifty update for its official Android application via the Play Store. In terms of added functionality, the upgrade brings a brand new visual search field to the app, which enables users to identify individual items within a pin.

How many times have you scrolled through your feed and seen a photo of a room containing an object that you’d really like to find out more about? Well now you can. Just tap the search tool in the right-hand corner and the application will automatically label the item, as well as present you with all the information it knows about it, including a purchase link.

To install the update on your Android-powered smartphone or tablet, simply open up the Play Store, toggle the hamburger menu by swiping in from the left-hand side of the screen, select ‘My Apps’ and click on ‘Pinterest’, then hit the update button. Alternatively, you can hit the link below to initiate the download on your smartphone from the Web.
