Amazon Dash: Revolutionizing the Way We Shop
With the new shopping gadget from Amazon known as the Amazon Dash, you will never run out of groceries ever again. So, how do you use it? Here's everything you need to know about this clever new device.
The Amazon Dash: How Does It Work?
The Amazon Dash is a simple handheld device which can be used to order groceries and other household items from Amazon Fresh, the company's next day delivery service. The Dash is actually a 6-inch long plastic device that can be connected to your home's Wi-Fi network with a simple setup.
This device is equipped with a laser scanner and a microphone for voice search to help users build their grocery list by simply scanning barcodes or by saying product names out loud. All the items that you have selected will then be added to your Amazon Fresh account where you can review your list and order the items from your smartphone or laptop. Once this is done, the items you ordered will be scheduled for delivery.
According to Amazon.com, the Dash offers a number of benefits which include the following:
· The ability to add items to your grocery list any time during the day by scanning barcodes or by saying the product name out loud to the device. As such, you can shop effortlessly all throughout the day without leaving the comforts of your own home since your groceries will be delivered right at your front door.
· You will never forget an item ever again. Since you can use the device anywhere in your home 24/7, you will never miss a single item on your grocery list.
· The device is extremely easy to use so even your kids can help you organize your grocery list.
· It gives you time to enjoy the things you love most. The Amazon Dash was designed to simplify your life and give you some extra time to do the things you enjoy the most.
The Amazon Dash doesn't really offer anything that a smartphone can't do. However, it is definitely tougher and sturdier as compared to your iPhone and is easier and faster to use.
The device is available only to a select number of Amazon Fresh users in Southern California, San Francisco and Seattle where it currently operates but the company is said to have plans of expanding to about 20 urban areas in 2014. Will the service be available to these planned expansion areas? As of writing, the company has not given any statement regarding this issue.
