Google Catalogs Launched on Android Tablets
Google announced today that Google Catalogs is now available for Android tablets.
Google Catalogs was originally launched in August as an iPad app. It launched with an impressive partner list that included: Neiman Marcus, Williams-Sonoma, Sephora, Urban Outfitters, Macy’s, Alloy, Anthropologie, Athleta, Bare Escentuals, Bare Necessities, Bergdorf Goodman, Bloomingdales, Boden, Brooks Brothers, CB2, Create&Barrel, Delia’s, Eddie Bauer, Fossil, Free People, Gump’s, Horchow, L.L. Bean, The Land of Nod, Lands’ End, Nordstrom, Patagonia, Pottery Barn, Red Envelope, Ross+Simons, Ralph Lauren Rugby, Saks Fifth Avenue, Sundance, Tea, Ugg, Venus, and West Elm.
“With rich product images, videos, and the ability to curate your own personal collages to share with friends, Google Catalogs makes browsing your favorite mail order catalogs easy, fun and interactive,” said Abigail Holtz, Business Product Manager on the Google Catalogs team.
“Google Catalogs features more than 125 brands you know and love like Nordstrom, Williams-Sonoma, Nike and Sephora,” she added. “The app currently has over 400 digital catalog issues to browse across categories such as mens & women’s apparel, jewelry, gifts, gourmet, toys, kids, gadgets, sports & athletics and outdoor adventure.”
Google touted Google Catalogs as a “greener way to shop” when it was initially launched, since users can subscribe to paperless versions of catalogs.
With the app, users can be notified as soon as the latest issues are available.
Businesses that put out catalogs can apply to have them considered for the app.
The app can be downloaded from the Android Market.
