Once a customer visits an online store they mainly spend more time in just searching the products of their interest. The more time it takes to search, the quick they lose the interest in the store.
However, along with giving them a large menu for categories and sub-categories, there should an option to manually search for the products. This option or rather a functionality can be achieved by the Search Autocomplete extension for your Magento 2 based stores.
The Search Autocomplete extension offers you to create a search and suggestion box for the customers to find their desired products. With this extension, the customers will get the suggestions of the products once the customer will enter the characters in the search box.
It offers full control over the settings and customization of the extension from the Magento 2 admin panel. You can customize the appearance of the product suggestions and search box layout.
