Guided Search: a new way to find what you’re looking for


Visual guides help you along

Now when you search for something (road trips, running, summer BBQ), descriptive guides will help you sift through all the good ideas from other Pinners. Scroll through the guides and tap any that look interesting to steer your search in the right direction.

Say you’re looking for plants to green up your apartment, guides help you get more specific—indoors, shade, succulents—so you can hone in on the ones that suit your space.

Or when it’s time for your next haircut, search by specific styles—for redheads, curly hair, layers—to find your next look.

Discover a few unexpected surprises

The guides are there to get you where you want to go, but the best part is leaving a little room for serendipity. Exploring getaway ideas might lead you to a treehouse adventure, a motorcycle trip down the coast, or maybe even something else you didn’t know you were looking for. You might be surprised where you end up!’re rolling this out on mobile in English to start, and then on web and everywhere else around the world soon. Learn more, or get the app for iPhone, iPad or Android to give it a try.
