In practice, this has often already been done via, for example, a virtual tour of Google . However, the virtual tour of Wifimedia goes a step further. A digital advisor is present when walking around the store. This advisor does his / her chat with various products. This allows customers to get acquainted with the products of brands such as Sonos, HEOS by Denon, LG and Sony while a specialist tells all ins and outs about the specific product.
