Google Released An AI-powered Pinterest-like App
Pinterest has evolved into a visual discovery engine over time and is now focusing more on eCommerce which Google has been observing over the years. As Pinterest acquires only a fraction of that market (as it stands at 367 million MAU and Google has 2 billion MAU for G Suite itself). It is expanding and is taking away the searches from Google.
That is why Google is working on to add Pinterest like features and tools. Google, the latest attempt on a new app like Pinterest, called Keen. It is launched as part of Google’s workshop for experimental projects Area 120.
What is Keen?
Using Google’s AI prowess and expertise with interfaces, Keen is particularly slick and smooth. Pinterest often feels like it’s been taken over by food and fashion bloggers. The team behind the app wanted to create something that leveraged manual list and content collection creation with machine learning. And Search to find “helpful content related to your interests.”
Considering just how long you can spend curating or searching boards and lists on competing services like Pinterest, you might find Keen that little bit more interesting. The team behind Keen also proposed that you’ll get even better recommendations the more you save and organize your own boards.
What is keen like to use?
Google said, “Keen is a place to grow and share your interests with loved ones and find things that will help in making this precious life count”. This app can be about anything from food and wild-life photography to researching art and typography.
Keen is a platform to expand and share your interests with loved ones and find stuff that will help make this special life count.
