The new Best Buy Envision app helps you find new purchases through a Vision Pro AR/VR headset and picture how they’ll look in your living space, the company said Friday.

“Today we’re announcing a new way that our customers can explore, discover and bring new technology to life in their own living space,” the big box store noted. “Best Buy Envision is an app exclusively available on the Apple Vision Pro that helps users plan their ultimate home technology setup.”

New Best Buy Envision app helps you picture purchases in your home with Vision Pro

Best Buy’s new Envision app uses augmented reality (AR) to help you preview 3D models of Best Buy products, the company said in a blog post.

“Best Buy Envision is another way we’re utilizing innovative technology to humanize consumer electronics like no one can,” said Brian Tilzer, Best Buy’s chief digital, analytics and technology officer.

“The app allows our customers to see, in a lifelike way, how technology will look and feel right in their own homes, delivering an immersive and personalized shopping experience,” he added.

So Vision Pro users can just strap on the headset, launch the app and go shopping. Think of all the gear you could get. The site runs frequent sales on Apple gear.

“That means while wearing Apple Vision Pro, you can see 3D images of how a variety of different products will look and feel in your space before you buy them,” the company said. “It includes big screen TVs, large and small appliances, fitness equipment, and furniture.”

The Best Buy Envision app allows you to scroll through scads of purchase options. Then you can see them in your physical space on the headset, the company said.

“Then, once you find the right option, you can easily access product ratings and pricing, send the product directly to a friend through text/email, or open the product page within the Vision Pro Safari app to make your purchase on BestBuy.com,” it added.

As Best Buy noted, this will make it easier to tell if that TV in your shopping cart should be a few inches bigger or not.
