Samsung officially unveiled the Galaxy S8 and the Galaxy S8+ yesterday and detailed all of the new features that the flagship brings. Bixby is one of those features. It’s a voice control interface that basically lets users do anything they can on the device with a tap by using voice commands. It also has other neat tricks up its sleeve, one of which is Pinterest visual search integration.

The Bixby Vision feature enables Galaxy S8 users to do so much more with a camera. They can fire up the feature and snap a picture of a famous landmark, for example, to find more information about it and even get suggestions about places to eat at near that landmark.

It’s also going to provide access to Pinterest’s visual discovery experience. To use that all users need to do is open up Bixby Vision and tap on the image search button.

So if you find a pair of shoes that you like you can do a Pinterest image search using the Galaxy S8 and find out similar styles and even get ideas for what to wear them with. The same feature also works with fabric patterns, recipe ingredients, wall art, tiles, and more.

All this and more will be possible when the Galaxy S8 is released on April 21st.
