Pinterest launches Guided Search to navigate you through its 30 billion pins

Leah Yamshon | April 28, 2014
Everyone's favorite virtual pin-board wants to introduce you to more than just decorated mason jars, apartment envy, and wedding inspiration. Pinterest launched Guided Search on Thursday, a new mobile-first tool that taps into Pinterest's massive user collection to bring the things you're really looking for right to the forefront.

"We're just one tap, one scroll away from things you might enjoy picked by other people," said Silbermann. 

Anoter feature rolling out soon is Custom Categories, which will let users add new categories based on their own boards.

Although Guided Search, Custom Categories, and Related Pins aren't game-changing features, these are all subtle changes that make a huge difference in the mobile Pinterest experience.

The latest version of Pinterest with Guided Search is now available for iOS and Android devices; it's coming soon to the web version of Pinterest.
