Google Plans To Go Public On The Market

Google is testing a pilot program where it looks to bring offline shops to the internet. This model is similar to Amazon Local Shops and Reliance Jio’s JioMart. But unlike these two, Google will list the products and will make them available via Google Search platform.

Google is testing the program in select cities as of now and the report states Google. The company is using the online to offline (O2O) model which helps them to connect local retailers with millions of customers. The report mentions retailers like Sangeetha Mobiles and Lenskart in Bengaluru are part of the pilot program. These brands allow users to view the available products, which helps them make pre-order and get them home delivered if needed.
