Some days Pinterest is just a compilation of things that we’d never be able to get our hands on, while other days, it’s the best inspiration for all things DIY. Today, we’re here to tell you that it’s becoming way more than just a tease of cute bags and gadgets. Pinterest is getting two new awesome updates that’ll satisfy your shopping and even app downloading needs.


So, you know those times when you’re riding the flow of all your pinspiration? Maybe it’s for DIY room decor or the perfect laptop case. Either way, you’re looking for things you might be able to buy and add to your life. Like, it’d be perfect if we could just conveniently hit a “Buy” button and see our pin being delivered to our front door. Well, looks like that’s going to become a reality within the next six months.

The social network has been picking up when you’re pinning shoppable items and sending you alerts when your pin’s price drops, but now they’re going to let you shop straight from your inspo boards. Are you hyperventilating out of excitement as much as we are?


Pinterest is also adding an “Install” button on app pins. So get your app pinboards and iPhones ready because all those productivity, weight management and exercising apps are about to get downloaded into your phone with a simple tap. This feature will only be available on the iOS Pinterest app, but hopefully Pinterest will be showing some love to Android soon. Apple’s App Store pinboard is now up, so be sure to go check it out and put that “Install” button to good use!

Which update are you more excited for? The purchasing feature or the app downloading feature? Let us know in the comments!
