Wescover also works together with Google Lens which helps artists get discovered using  AR/visual search. This visual search lets you look up what’s in front of you and, in the case of Wescover, leads you to an exact match. It’s an empowering tool for anyone interested in art. In the near future, Wescover will use this tool to reveal more 3D objects like furniture and light fixtures too. The platform features also an interactive map that  automatically updates when items are added so visitors can see the range of the creative work growing on the map.
