Domain continues to lead with new technology in the Australian property market
Domain continues to equip house-hunters, vendors and agents with the latest technology, revealing its Android app is Australia’s first property app to be compatible with wearable technology.
Domain’s existing native Android app allows users to receive notifications about new property listings. Now property-seekers can receive these updates on their wrist as well as on their phone - so they will never miss out on a listing in their search area.
With the release of this app update, Domain becomes one of the first Australian brands to develop an app compatible with Android Wear.
Damon Pezaro, Product Director of Domain said, “This makes the search for property that much more effective as it reduces the friction in searching for a new home. Property seekers don’t have to remember to go online and repeat their search over and over or rely on checking for email alerts.
“As soon as a new listing in their target search area becomes live, they get a notification on their smart watch, they then follow the link to their phone and send an enquiry to the listing agent. There is a real immediacy with this technology.”
Domain’s acclaimed property app was the first in Australia to feature notifications and is now the first to offer customers a wearable solution.
Mr Pezaro continued, “As the take up of Android Wear grows, this technology is going to be popular with both agents and buyers. The feedback received during the beta testing was certainly encouraging – we’ve had over 40% of click-through in notifications, which reflects strong adoption. Customers will no longer worry that they might be missing out on their dream property and agents will see a real increase in leads.
"This continues Domain's lead in bringing the latest technology to the property market, and there is more to come. Our best developers recently returned from Google I/O full of ideas that are now in development. We are always looking for new ways to help Domain customers and agents use technology to help them in the search for their ideal property."
