Magento 2.3.5 – Introducing Adobe Sensei

This upcoming patch update will include several incredible features to improve the Magento 2 platform. 

 Adobe Sensei, a product recommendation AI will implement into this next update. The storefront experience will have some new enhancements. This unique program is an embedded admin experience that can be a useful marketing tool to increase conversions, boost revenue, and stimulate shopper engagement. The automated AI uses machine learning-driven recommendations giving suggestions to merchants about “Customers who viewed this product also viewed,” “Customers who bought this product also bought,” and “Recommended for you.” The new update will be available for free to all merchants that use Magento directly from the Magento Marketplace. Adobe Sensei will allow merchants to learn more about their customer’s buying habits and to help them along the buying experience to find out what item they might want soon. This AI implementation is pivotal to keeping your website standards higher than the average competitor and help you connect even more with your customers. 

Features: The new Page Builder features will help you create an engaging website, take control of your brand, as well as save time and resources. These features will provide customizable page layouts and intuitive drag-and-drop content management. 

Security: There will be 25+ security fixes and improvements as well as Content Security Platform implementation.
