Who needs words anyway?

We're seriously crushing on the latest update to the Pinterest app and website, which makes it possible to search Pinterest without using words, Adweek reports. Now we can search for things that were seemingly impossible before, like a purse in a fashion blogger's look or a print hanging on the wall of someone's apartment. Are your thumbs starting to get twitchy just thinking about it? Ours are.


With this new update, you just have to click the search button in the upper right-hand corner of the pin. Then, select the part of the pin that's tickling your fancy, and it will show you items based on a visual search. It also can identify the name of products as well as the brand information, according to a post on the official Pinterest blog.

Pinterest has made some major strides in making the site more shoppable this year - rolling out shoppable pins in the summer and introducing a more curated browsing experience called The Pinterest Shop on mobile about a week ago.

At the time of publication, it doesn't appear that the text-free search update is available yet, even though it was expected to release today. In the meantime, we'll be waiting patiently...we're pumped to stalk our fave celebs' street style!
