Here are the top AR trends in retail to watch in 2023.

1. Improves In-store Experience
Using AR apps on mobile devices, customers can now quickly access product details, try out varied colors of the desired products, and make a purchase decision faster without actually trying each one out.

Furniture and electronics brands are now highly using AR to improve their point-of-sales by letting their customers view the size, color, and look of the products in their selected space!
