Customers testing new technology at their homes integrated to Amazon Dash are responding positively to the technology.
The hand-held device is free for now and available only to Amazon Prime Fresh customers in Los Angeles and San Francisco who were invited to test it.
The device allows users to order goods by scanning barcodes of everyday groceries. When there is no barcode – as on a pineapple – a microphone and voice recognition technology allow users to speak their additions to a shopping list.
While it is early yet, shoppers are saying that they find the Dash easy to use, and that it increases their shopping on Amazon.
