In a recent announcement preceding its earnings release, Amazon introduced a generative AI shopping assistant named Rufus, currently undergoing testing among a select group of users in the U.S.

Its primary function is to respond to customer inquiries regarding shopping needs, product details, and comparisons. Rufus leverages this information to offer context-based recommendations and aid in product exploration.

To access Rufus, customers can either type or speak their questions directly into the search bar within the Amazon Shopping app. Alternatively, they can choose from a set of pre-populated questions. Amazon will then provide answers through a chat dialog box, facilitating a seamless and informative interaction to assist customers in making more informed purchase decisions. Currently launched in beta for a limited customer group, Rufus is set to progressively roll out to all of Amazon's U.S. customers in the coming weeks. (Source: Amazon)
