    Welcome to the forums.

    You will hear this in spoken English. You are with a group of people, and you want to know if anyone else has used some object, so you might say this.

    It is not the correct way to write the same question >> "Has anyone used this product before?"

    You mean... you are with a group of people and you wanna know if anyone else has used some object..
    'anyone used this product before' is correct and 'has anyone used this product before?' is uncorrect? I thought it was correct one too.

    if so, in what situation 'has anyone used this profuct before?' spoken ?

    "Has anyone used this product before?" - correct or incorrect?

    Of course you can say either.

    However, if you are writing the sentence, it is not good grammar to omit "has".
