eBay has launched image-recognition features on its mobile app to let shoppers search its listings using pictures instead of words. ‘Find It On eBay’ enables shoppers to search on any social platform or while browsing their favorite website simply by sharing the image with eBay.

With Image Search, customers can click on the app’s camera button to take a photo or use an existing photo from their camera roll to find items that are a close match or visually similar. These new features use computer vision and deep learning to make it easier to find  items, with uploaded images processed by a convolutional neural network.
