  • Patent number: 11375122
    Abstract: Digital image capture session and metadata association techniques are described. In one example, a user input is received to initiate an image capture session. At least one digital image is captured using a digital camera during the image capture session. Audio input data is also collected using an audio input device during the image capture session and is converted into text data, e.g., speech-to-text. Metadata is generated based on the text data and associated with the at least one digital image. The at least one digital image is output as having the associated metadata as completion of the image capture session.

  • Publication number: 20210064611
    Abstract: Methods, systems, and computer storage media for processing search queries using item-based search refinement are provided. In response to a search query, search result items are displayed on a search interface. The search result items each have an associated item-specific control having embedded selectable hierarchical category classifications. Upon selecting an item-specific control, the item-specific control is displayed. A selection of an embedded hierarchical category classification is received to cause execution of an embedded-item search operation. An embedded-item search operation is executed to identify a subset of the items using the selected hierarchical category classification. The associated item-specific control further has embedded selectable attributes. A selection of an embedded attribute is further received to cause execution of the embedded-item search operation.

  • Publication number: 20200260243
    Abstract: Methods, systems, and apparatus for providing assistance to a user of a mobile application are described. A request for assistance from the user is detected and a request is issued to a remote device for establishment of a remote assistance session. Information describing a state of the mobile device is periodically transmitted to the remote device and one or more commands may be received from the remote device. The commands may be executed on the mobile device.

  • Publication number: 20200183920
    Abstract: Methods and systems are provided to refine search information. The methods and systems are for receiving a request from a mobile device, the request including an indication of a swiping motion that is applied across a touch-sensitive screen on the mobile device, the touch sensitive screen displaying search results including a first plurality of data items. The methods and systems are for retrieving a first refinement and a first value from a database entry. The methods and systems are for filtering the search results to generate refined search results including a second plurality of data items that are filtered based on the first refinement and the first value. The methods and systems are for communicating a user interface, over the network, to the mobile device, the communicating being responsive to the receiving the request, the user interface including the second plurality of data items for display on the mobile device.

  • Patent number: 9672259
    Abstract: Methods and systems to refine search results were described. The system communicates a first user interface to a mobile device that includes search results that include data items. The system receives a first request from the mobile device that includes an indication of at least one swiping motion that is applied across a touch-sensitive screen on the mobile device. The mobile device is associated with a previously selected refinement and corresponding value. The system filters the search results. The refined search results include a second plurality of data items based on the previously selected refinement and the corresponding value. The system generates a second user interface that includes the refined search results. The system communicates the second user interface, over the network, to the mobile device. The second user interface includes the refined search results that include the second plurality of data items to display on the mobile device.
