Amazon Launches In-Car Delivery

Posted April 24, 2018 at 2:41pm by iClarified
Amazon has announced that Amazon Key, its service that provides in-home delivery, now gives users an option to receive deliveries inside their vehicle.

With Amazon Key In-Car, Prime members with compatible vehicles now have the convenience of having packages delivered inside their cars when parked in a publicly accessible area, typically at their home or workplace.

In-car delivery is available at no extra cost for Prime members and is available today in 37 cities and surrounding areas across the U.S. with more cities rolling out over time. The service works with Same Day, Two-Day and Standard Shipping.

“The in-car delivery option is another way Amazon helps ensure that my order is delivered safely and conveniently. Setup was super easy for my OnStar-equipped car—I granted Amazon Key permission to open my car’s trunk and the ability to relock my car when done, and that was it,” said Scott L. from Miami, one of the Amazon Prime members who received early access to the service. “I can’t wait to check my car’s trunk to see what’s delivered next!”

To get started, customers download the Amazon Key App and then link their Amazon account with their connected car service account. Once setup is complete and the delivery location has been registered, customers can shop on and select the “In-Car” delivery option at checkout.

On delivery day, the Amazon Key App lets customers check if they’ve parked within range of the delivery location, and provides notifications with the expected 4-hour delivery time window. The App also notifies customers when the delivery is on its way, and the package has been delivered. Customers can track when their car was unlocked and relocked in the App’s activity feed, and rate their in-car delivery.

“Since launching Amazon Key last November, we’ve safely delivered everything from cameras to collectable coins inside the home. Customers have also told us they love features like keyless guest access and being able to monitor their front door from anywhere with the Amazon Key App,” said Peter Larsen, Vice President of Delivery Technology, Amazon. “In-car delivery gives customers that same peace of mind and allows them to take the Amazon experience with them. And, with no additional hardware or devices required, customers can start ordering in-car delivery today.”

In-car delivery is available to customers with a compatible 2015 or newer Chevrolet, Buick, GMC or Cadillac vehicle with an active OnStar account, and customers with a 2015 or newer Volvo vehicle with an active Volvo On Call account. Support for more vehicle makes and models will be added over time.

I would never let strangers even mi closest relatives and friends access. Can't wait until stuff goes missing and they wonder why

Amazon is becoming the new Google little by little... Now people using Alexa, remind yourselves? 'How the hell this thing works so good?' - the more data Amazon gathers, the better Alexa performs... This is one of the reasons why Siri is so poor at stuff according to peeps and internet articles, users should like it this way.

I feel like a difference between the two is that since Amazon sells physical products it shouldn’t have to monetize you’re personal data in the form of sharing your data with third parties. Of course shouldn’t and doesn’t are two different things.

Keep in mind that they run amazon services or servers for hosting or other internet data services. Check that article where Walmart warns their partners to get out from Amazon services, because they look at data, they look at what’s trending so that can sell accordingly. Just like Google with ads.
