The newest addition to Amazon's very personal (like, way too personal) in-home delivery service is Amazon Key In-Car, which we first heard about at Mashable.

ANNOUNCED that its "Amazon Key" service will now deliver shizzle to the boot (it's English for trunk) of your automobizzle. The company first made headlines on this front past year with the launch of Amazon Key, a service that could unlock the door to your home and deliver packages when aren't there. A connected auto service plan will enable Amazon Key to connect with your vehicle for in-car deliveries. It's intended objective, point blank, is to create a delivery method for users who park their auto in public places at work. They can keep track of their packages in real-time and receive updates throughout the transaction. In-car delivery is available now for drivers with a compatible 2015 or newer Chevy, Buick, GMC, or Cadillac with an active OnStar account, and 2015 or newer Volvo vehicles with active Volvo On Call accounts.

To get started, customers download the Amazon Key App and then link their Amazon account with their connected auto service account.

Amazon Launched in India Echo and Echo Dot, Plus Smart
The Echo Dot receives a huge discount as well with the current price set at Rs 3,999 instead of its original Rs 4,499 price tag. The convenience of Drop In is available on all Echo devices in India including the Echo Spot , Echo Dot , Echo and Echo Plus .


"Receiving a package securely and reliably in your auto, without you having to be there, is something we think many people will appreciate", said Atif Rafiq, chief digital officer at Volvo Cars. To combat theft of parcels left on porches, the company will now deliver packages to customers' cars.

On the day of the delivery, customers will get a notification about the expected time of delivery. Albertsons, Safeway, Costco and Kroger also recently inked deals with Silicon Valley startup Instacart, which provides home-delivery grocery services. After it's set up, you can select the "In-Car" delivery option at checkout when shopping on Amazon. Volvo did something similarly in Goteborg several years ago, with smart vehicle keys granting couriers access to the trunk of parked cars.

Rohit Shrivastava, the general manager of Amazon Key, has stressed that the system is "securely encrypted", and the company can not see or track a customer's auto. Amazon won't deliver to a private parking garage or other places where access to a vehicle is not readily available. "And, with no additional hardware or devices required, customers can start ordering in-car delivery today". No special codes or keys are given to the driver.

Amazon, which is already opening front doors for parcel delivery, now wants to offer the same service for vehicles.

"This mix of auto and commerce is starting the next wave of innovation and we intend to be at the forefront".

No, all the Warriors' Game 4 loss meant is that Golden State will have to hold another practice they can not walk through. Ginobili (3/5), Murray (3/4), Patty Mills (3/7) each hit three three-pointers and Green (2/5) had two.
