On Shoploop, videos are shorter than 90 seconds which features the reviewer describing the product and trying it on. Google said it is working with content creators, publishers and online store owners in the beauty industry for the review videos on Shoploop.

Shoploop currently caters to four categories including makeup, skincare, hair and nail. It has a feed on the homepage where videos autoplay but with the audio muted. Users can like the video, share and save them as well. The products displayed have the link to the website from where users can purchase it.
