Amazon Launches In-Car Delivery

NEW: Smart Home gadgets & gizmos

Amazon is on a mission to make people want to buy more things on its site. It is already working on in-home delivery. The company has announced that now you can ask for delivery in your parked car:

Prime members with Chevrolet, Buick, GMC, Cadillac and Volvo cars can now use Amazon Key to have their Amazon packages delivered inside their vehicle parked at home, work or near other locations in their address book

Customers simply have to download the Amazon Key app, link their connected car, and start ordering on Amazon.com. The service will be available in 37 cities. Customers can use the companion app to see whether they have parked their car within delivery range. As far as security goes:

Amazon uses multiple layers of verification to ensure the security of in-car deliveries. Each time a delivery driver requests access to a customer’s vehicle, Amazon verifies that an authorized driver is at the right location with the right package, through an encrypted authentication process. Once this process is successfully completed, the car is then unlocked. Customers receive a notification via the Amazon Key App after the delivery is completed and the vehicle is relocked.
