Amazon Is Bringing Dash Buttons To Every Screen In Your Home

New software from Amazon allows home appliances with screens, such as smart fridges and washing machines, to incorporate a virtual Dash button

Amazon continues to expand its easy ordering capabilities with the newly announced Virtual Dash Button Service (VDBS). The company started with physical Dash buttons, which then were adapted into online versions, allowing Amazon Prime members to quickly reorder favorite products with one click.

Now, VDBS allows other devices—such as smart fridges or washing machines—to incorporate the Dash button on their screens, facilitating manual reordering and streamlining convenience. This way, users could order laundry detergent, for example, as soon as they notice it’s running low by pressing a button right on their washing machine’s screen. VDBS is currently being used by three appliance brands: Whirlpool, Samsung and LG.

This move brings Amazon one step closer to being a functional part of the smart home, a strategy many companies are realizing to be the future—from Tesla to Apple, and everyone in between.
