Google’s New AI Tool Lets Shoppers Virtually Try On Clothes with Diverse Models 

 May 25, 2024

Summary: Google introduces a new feature enabling shoppers to preview how clothing items look on various models using generative AI. This expansion of last year’s virtual try-on tool seeks to enhance user experience and provide a competitive edge in the e-commerce space.

Generative AI Enhances Shopping Experience

Google’s latest announcement unveils a tool that revolutionizes how shoppers interact with online clothing ads. Using generative artificial intelligence, this feature allows customers to see clothing items on different models with varying skin tones and body types. This addition builds on the virtual try-on tool introduced last year, aiming to offer a more personalized shopping experience. Shoppers searching for items like “eyelet crop top” will now encounter a clickable gallery displaying the product on diverse real models, offering a more relatable and realistic view.

Ease of Use for Advertisers

One of the significant benefits is that brands aren’t required to provide detailed dimensions of their clothing for the system to generate these model images. This simplifies the process for advertisers, making the tool more accessible and easier to use, even though it can’t replace the precision of a tape measure for exact fit. This ease of use could encourage more brands to adopt this technology, providing greater exposure and potentially higher engagement rates.

AI-Powered Ad Tools Announced

This try-on ad format is just one of several new generative AI tools Google introduced at its Marketing Live event. As Google continues to innovate its advertising platform, it aims to bolster its already substantial revenue stream, which saw a 13% increase from the previous year’s figures, reaching $61.7 billion in the last quarter.

Competitive Landscape and Brand Concerns

Google’s move is strategic, aiming to stay ahead in the e-commerce race against rivals like Amazon and TikTok. These platforms are also exploring AI capabilities to enhance user experience and capture more of the online shopping market share. However, not all feedback has been positive. Some consumers may find AI-generated ads unappealing, and certain fashion brands have already faced backlash for integrating AI into their marketing strategies.

The Future of AI in Advertising

Despite these concerns, the use of generative AI in advertising is becoming more prevalent. Other giants in the industry, such as Meta and Amazon, are also launching similar tools. While these advancements promise clear benefits for smaller businesses by leveling the playing field, the long-term effects on consumer behavior and the creative industry are still uncertain.
