iterations of updates and vastly expanded its arsenal of capabilities to better

serve its users globally.

users have more than one way to search for what they need, enhancing the

apparel. Petal Search also offers a hands-free Voice Search feature that is

particularly useful when users are multi-tasking. So regardless of whether a

user is looking up the opening hours of a restaurant in the car, or checking

Search recently introduced several new features in the form of 'CARDS' to

provide unprecedented convenience to supercharge users' digital lifestyles,

such as booking tickets, express, coupon and recipe CARD services. These cards
