Amazon wants to be your go-to destination for anything and everything. It sells millions of products online, even groceries and fresh produce, as well as frequently used items like diapers, kitchen rolls, detergent, ink for printers and much more. Its programmable Dash Buttons allow for one-touch reordering of the items that you frequently used and now the company has activated Dash-enabled devices through a software update, allowing those devices to automatically reorder products that you need to stock up on.
Amazon launched the Dash buttons last year, these branded buttons allow for easy and quick reordering of specific products, and it’s expanding that platform by integrating it with connected smart devices.
Several Dash-enabled products have already been released even though the feature wasn’t activated by Amazon, these include several printers from Brothers, the Gmate Smart blood glucose monitor and a washer from GE.
This takes out all of the pain from having to manually order products that need to be used with that device. For example, the printer will automatically order toner from Amazon when it’s running low, and the washer will do the same with detergent. This will make sure that users never run out of the things that they really need to have around the house.
