Flipkart started its new application ‘Ping’. This app is use as messenger cum social network. Using this app we can do online shopping with our friends. This app is beneficial to avoid the complication occurs during online shopping.
This new application has a chat feature through which users can share product images and chat with each other while shopping. The feature has been developed to the Flipkart apps for Android and iOS, but users need an invite to access the feature.
Ping is visible as a chat icon floating on the right hand side of app. Users can share products, wishlists, and carts with their phonebook contacts, and chat with them. Users can also share their screens and browse together. Users no longer need an email address to register on the Flipkart app or reset their password.
Online shopping, on the other hand, has largely remained a solo experience, said Flipkart’s Chief Product Officer, Punit Soni, adding that Ping brings a unique blend of messaging and shopping for the first time. “Intention behind this app is to transform online shopping by allowing users to talk to each other real time in order to make decisions and decide on what to buy,” he said.
