Oh, Amazon! You can now use the Key app for in-car delivery


Oh, the times we live in! Amazon, in its ever-expanding quest for delivery options, can now make their couriers put stuff straight into your car. We kid you not, it's a variation of the Amazon Key service that was introduced not long ago, and allows couriers to leave deliveries inside your house, instead of on the front porch.

Called In-car Delivery (duh), the new Amazon service would work with Chevrolet, GMC, Cadillac, Buick, and Volvo. Notice a trend - yep, vehicles with systems for remote unlocking. According to Amazon, "In-Car Delivery supports most 2015 model year or newer Chevrolet, Buick, GMC, Cadillac, and Volvo vehicles with an active connected car service plan such as OnStar or Volvo On Call."

The way it works is that you download the Amazon Key App, shop on the site, and choose one of your addresses for in-car delivery. Amazon will notify you about the delivery window on the day, and, as long as you've parked within two blocks from the address, it will authorize the courier to unlock the trunk, and put your stuff in. After slipping in the package, and upon locking the vehicle, the app will notify you about a successful delivery. Neat, and above are the first happy campers.

The best delivery method is the Amazon Locker. No one needs to go inside your house or car. It is not that hard. But people are still lazy and still want to complaint about privacy. So there's no winning. I say stick to the Amazon Lockers, just add more throughout the city.

The locker is awesome. It's availaboe in many locations and it is secure. For those that live in areas where crime is a serious concern this could be cool...well until the their breaks your windows and takes your stuff....double whammy.

whos complaining about privacy, this is a safety issue, amazon delivers a package to your house and all of a sudden there is a ninja hiding in your house ready to whack you

Absolutely! But not for what u think. Amazon delivery drivers cant delver to my own home properly so, I have tired the locker 5 times. An every time, they fail to do it properly. Each time my package is set on top of the machine for anyone to grab and the code i get to my phone opens a locker with someones else's package. Got some free stuff!
