What exactly is Visual Search?
Visual search uses pictures in place of the input text for looking up things online.

The visual can come from anywhere, it can either be an image clicked in real-time by a camera or be an image from any one's gallery, and even an image is taken from anywhere like a website or email.
The next steps include identifying the image, determining what the person searching wants to see, and delivering accurate or close to accurate results.

With smartphones being so common clicking an image instantly is no hassle, meanwhile, search platforms have to go through dozens of libraries carrying data to bring forward what user wishes to see, other than that visual search uses advancements in AI and machine learning to allow platforms to learn more accurately and perform the search faster.
