Pinterest's shopping pins arrive on Android for the holiday frenzy

After launching its Buyable Pins on iOS earlier this summer, Pinterest is looking to let the Google faithful in on the goods, too. As of today, the online repository is rolling out the feature to Android users. This means that you’ll be able to purchase goods from retailers large and small without having to leave the app. We’re talking stuff from the likes of Macy’s, Bloomingdale’s, Neiman Marcus and more. In fact, the tally of Buyable Pins now numbers 60 million and a new Pinterest Shop curates trends for easy access. Just like regular ol’ pins, you can search for the shopping items and filter them based on price and other criteria to find the exact items you’re after. While today’s news means Buyable Pins are available on both Android and iOS, they remain absent from the web for now, but Pinterest plans to employ them in your browser “in the future.” Slideshow-338498
