This app perfectly combines e-commerce and Augmented Reality features. From one side, customers can browse and buy a number of different products. From the other side, they can see how these products will look like using the virtual try-on feature.

As a result, the Warby Parker team optimized the sales funnel several times. Customers no need to go to the stores anymore. They can select, try and purchase Warby Parker eyewear at the home, office or any other preferred locations directly from their smartphones.

While COVID 19 damages different industries and businesses, Warby Parker can still keep alive and stay with their customers on the same page. Moreover, the mobile e-commerce experience provides more advantages rather than the web. For example, businesses can offers PUSH notifications, seamless payment experience, virtual try-on feature and more.

Dave Gilboa, co-founder and co-CEO of Warby Parker, says a virtual try-on feature was in the company roadmap nine years ago prior we launch it. Also, Warby Parker had the experience to test Augmented Reality features with Snapchat lenses. Neil Blumenthal is another co-founder, mentions the band wanted to pause for something more realistic.

Catchar team thinks there were several reasons for Warby Parker to wait a little bit. Firstly, developing and polishing own real-time facial recognition engine and AR mapping can turn into a long and costly journey. Secondly, the brand was avoiding dependency by other AR companies, like Snapchat, Vuforia, Wikitude, etc.

Thanks to Apple's new iPhone X, Apple ARKit SDK and the TrueDepth camera, this idea became real. Warby Parker was able to develop their own try-on module and integrate it into the app. The TrueDepth technology and 30K infrared dots provide accurate real-time mapping of eyewear day and night.

Warby Parker app and its AR feature pushed other tech companies and startups to develop and integrate virtual try-on features. For example, King Children and Topology eyewear also became using TrueDepth camera and ARKit.

Conclusion: Warby Parker definitely found the right time to integrate the Augmented Reality try-on feature into its app. This helped the company improve the mobile shopping experience during COVID 19 pandemic from some standpoint.
