Now, this is possible only if you are shopping at the Seattle store, as Amazon presently don’t have plans to expand on the entire system in other of its retail shops. This suggests that the sublime method is being presently tested by the company depending upon the results of which they may consider expanding later.

Amazon released a video that shows the advanced idea of shoppers just going to the store, picking up your favorite things, and leave! It is indeed a convenient shopping aspect, considering numerous facts. To start with, shopping is made easy and less time-consuming. Then, the store will basically escape being crowded where you get to have the peace in selecting your items.

Other things responsible for enjoying the advancement and staying connected with the brand via your account is very easy to maintain. Amazon wants to see how things go in this respect.

The technology of Amazon Go will work even when you are entering the shop in a group, be it with your family or friends. Scanning all members of the group with the same code or phone is possible and the technology will track all of them. The system is always on the toe to track each of your pickings like if you keep back an item in the shelf after checking, it will update thusly in real-time.

The app provides further details on how the entire system will work. Besides Google Store, you can get the app from Amazon’s App Store as well. We do want the convenience spread globally in the future and are keeping a tab on the development. Meanwhile, you can drop your thoughts regarding this in the comments below. Happy shopping!
