Microsoft Releases Personal Shopping Assistant on Android (Beta)

The app started as a browser extension from Microsoft Garage and is designed to automatically capture and save product information from product pages you browse.


Back in February, Microsoft added more merchants to the Personal Shopping Assistant on Microsoft Edge. Now, the company has released the application on Android, as a beta.

The Personal Shopping Assistant started as a browser extension from Garage. Available for Chrome, Opera, Edge, and Firefox, the app helps users shop online with their browser as they normally do.

Products that users search for will automatically start appearing within the assistant, under Browsed. The Personal Shopping Assistant also allows users to save products they like to Favorites and get notified when their prices change.

Here is a list of what the Personal Shopping Assistant offers:

  • Automatically remembers products you browse inside the browser and shopping Apps
  • Stores price, picture, reviews and ratings automatically for products you browse
  • Get automatic price change notifications for products and always get the best price
  • Find other places to buy products you browse and save money
  • Organize products you like into convenient boards, share with others
  • Get all your shopping across phone, tablet, PC and Mac in one place, automatically
