With b8ta Stake, Macy's Pop-up Biz Gets A Boost | PYMNTS.com
Retail giant Macy’s is boosting its pop-up shop presence, known as Market @ Macy’s. The company is doing so by taking a minority stake in b8ta, a three year old firm that CNBC reported helps brands build out their physical store footprint. B8ta will offer up back end support for Market @ Macy’s.

That smaller tech-focused firm, reported CNBC, lets shoppers examine and interact with gadgets before purchasing them. For instance, Macy’s will branch out into offering products such as digital art canvas.

As has been reported, Macy’s has been in the midst of changing the way its retail space is used — in one example, Macy’s bought STORY, which offers a rotating theme that determines what merchandise is offered across a span of several months.

Google Shopping Tools Feature Inventory Lists | PYMNTS.com
“There are brand new ways for people to find and engage with businesses, and it’s becoming critical for marketers to remove friction at every step of the consumer journey,” the company wrote in a press release.

The company points out that with almost 80 percent of shoppers visiting a store when they need an item right away, Google is expanding affiliate location extensions to video campaigns on YouTube. The company revealed that adding this feature to TrueView in-stream and bumper ads can increase clickthrough rates by over 15 percent.

There will also be new local catalog ads on display to help shoppers discover products before they visit a store. One-third of shoppers say finding inspiration is something they enjoy most about the shopping experience.

Shortcuts: A New Vision for Siri and iOS Automation – MacStories
In my Future of Workflow article from last year (published soon after the news of Apple's acquisition), I outlined some of the probable outcomes for the app. The more optimistic one – the "best timeline", so to speak – envisioned an updated Workflow app as a native iOS automation layer, deeply integrated with the system and its built-in frameworks. After studying Apple's announcements at WWDC and talking to developers at the conference, and based on other details I've been personally hearing about Shortcuts while at WWDC, it appears that the brightest scenario is indeed coming true in a matter of months.
On the surface, Shortcuts the app looks like the full-blown Workflow replacement heavy users of the app have been wishfully imagining for the past year. But there is more going on with Shortcuts than the app alone. Shortcuts the feature, in fact, reveals a fascinating twofold strategy: on one hand, Apple hopes to accelerate third-party Siri integrations by leveraging existing APIs as well as enabling the creation of custom SiriKit Intents; on the other, the company is advancing a new vision of automation through the lens of Siri and proactive assistance from which everyone – not just power users – can reap the benefits.

The Monetizable World Of Voice Gaming | PYMNTS.com
The Spelling Bee game failed, but its name-that-tune trivia game “Song Quiz” was a hit. And the hits just kept on coming with Volley rolling out about a dozen or so titles, all of which are designed around a different type of gaming experience. “Yes Sire,” for example, is a choose-your-own-adventure style storytelling game that is also a chart-topper. In just under a year, Volley has built an audience of about half a million active monthly users across its range of voice-gaming options — and that active base has, thus far in the firm’s short life, been growing by 50 to 70 percent per month.

The reasoning behind all that big growth? According to Child, they are offering up an experience via Voice that brings customers closer to people in real life.
