#FlipkartImageSearch Experience

My #FlipkartImageSearch experience

I rarely give up my Saturday morning sleep. But this Saturday there was the IndiBlogger meet and these meets are always packed with Knowledge, Fun, Entertainment, and Food and this time it's FLIPKART. Since I got the invite after much awaiting for the invitation, I made it a point to be there on time, moreover, the event was scheduled at the happening place "HardRock Cafe".

The event started with the performance by the IndiBlogger team. You guys rocked the stage. Kudos and you guys are always the best.

Now comes the most important part of the event. The Product Head Puneet from Flipkart gives us a brief on how he started with Flipkart and blah-blah. Liked this guys approach in what he is today at Flipkart. He went on to explain Flipkart shopping and Image Search feature and how it'll be useful to each and every Indian, which includes our Rural India. Flipkart aims to make our shopping experience simple so no matter what phone we use, we should be able to shop with ease. 

Will that happen? That's a big question with our Service Provide Network ups and downs, it's really hard. But Flipkart claims 95% of their business comes through Mobile shopping. Maybe, people like me add the products to cart from the laptop and then go to the Mobile App and complete the shopping. 

We were given a demo on the Flipkart image search feature and the demo was quite disappointing, with no proper light and preparation ;) So Flipkart, be well prepared with the demo and presentations next time on.

We had fun-filled question answer session, where in one of our Senior blogger wanted to match with the Priyanka Chopra look alike as an alliance for marriage, if Flipkart would support that option. Well, should Flipkart support this? Apart from that, there were so many concerns about Flipkart moving on to App only support. Flipkart claims this to be revolutionary step and we will all love it, I still do not support this step. For me, shopping through Laptop will be in ease compared to shopping through the App.

The images will be stored on your account for a specific periodic, based on the average time user takes to make a decision, comes back and buys the product. Also, they are yet to revive the privacy policy with this feature update. 

what is it all about the APP, I fail to understand!

The food served was yummy and thanks for the drinks and starters. :)

Now comes the interesting part of the event. Hands on activity on the #FlipkartImageSearch feature. It was much fun trying out the feature, great that I had updated the Flipkart app with the latest update before hand. The feature is in progress which currently applicable on Apparels and Accessories only. When I heard that Flipkart is launching Visual Search feature, I was very excited. And this feature is going to be a BIG HIT in India. 

Our task was to click the image of any Apparel or accessories which we like and then search for the product and add the closest similar product to the wishlist. Our group could collect around 25 products in few minutes time. Though we couldn't be the winners.
Anoop's T-Shirt was in great demand during Point.Shoot.Buy. Demo :D

Here  is the demo of the Visual Search feature. enjoy #FlipkartImageSearch experience. Click on the image to enlarge.

So, how do you like the #FlipkartImageSearch feature. Do let me know your feedback. Way to go #Flipkart. Lot more to work on the Visual Search for this to be a success. All the best!

Flipkart has changed the meaning of shopping in each and every household in India. Shopping is so much at ease with Flipkart from their reliable service to their up-to-date app/website where you find whatever you need to shop easily. The experience what I get is incomparable with any other online shopping channel. Simple and great designs!

Initially, I was so afraid of Online Shopping, though I started shopping for books. But the shopping was so reliable I ended up shopping each and everything, may it be apparels, cosmetics, house hold items and what not.

I'm so excited to join the IndiBlogger meet this time especially to get to know the Flipkart's newest technology #FlipkartImageSearch Experience to make our shopping a hassle free experience. See you @HardRockCafe #Flipkart and #IndiBlogger.

We miss you Sir!

He thought us to dream, to chase and work towards our dream, to be restless until we see the dream coming true. He inspired each and every Indian in one or the other way. Truly a peoples president, while on position, we never got the feel of politics but the service of a true citizen. A person who loved India more, moreover he loved humanity. His greatness is such that, he could say goodbye to his life while in front of the podium, in action, doing what he liked the most: inspiring generations of Indians.

We miss this man with a great vision for India and who live forever in the hearts of every Indian.

Today's Gyan is dedicated to Dr. APJ Abdul Kalam. Salute to you sir.

Hapus ka simple joy!

Come April, the markets all over in India will be flooded with variety of mangoes. April, May - the season of Mango and they are used in almost every cuisine.. Juice, Milk Shake, Aap ka panna, Lassi, Mango curry, Salsa, chutney, Desserts, Ice creams, and what not. 

I just love the season of mangoes and they are healthy too, until and unless you overeat :-D
