For my part, the service worked well, though I had to borrow a auto that was compatible.

A vehicle with an active connected service plan can enable features such as remote lock and unlock, remote start, emergency services, vehicle diagnostics, in-vehicle Wi-Fi and more.

Amazon is launching a service that can deliver packages inside the trunk of your vehicle!

How does the Amazon Key App connect with my Chevrolet, Buick, GMC or Cadillac vehicle?

The service is available to customers who download the Amazon Key app and have a vehicle that allows them to open and close it with the use of an online app, as a feature of the auto. You can check if your vehicle qualifies and if Amazon offers the service in your area here . Second, the unlock request is handled by OnStar or Volvo On Call instead of Amazon. The service was initially available in only four markets - Austin, Cincinnati, Dallas and Virginia Beach. They need to be model year 2015 or newer with an active subscription to OnStar or Volvo on Call.

"In-car delivery gives customers that same peace of mind and allows them to take the Amazon experience with them".

According to the Engadget, Amazon Key In-Car service is available across 37 cities in the United States. "We realize customers want choice but we do know our Prime members tend to appreciate the services we offer to them".

"There is zero chance I'll ever use Amazon key to have them enter my auto or house to deliver a package", wrote one person on Twitter. There's no camera add-on to monitor deliveries, so you'll have to trust that no chicanery is going on. If you're uncomfortable letting in a random delivery driver (rightfully so), there's another option for you.

For both automakers, once the apps are downloaded and paired, shoppers then choose their delivery location and select the "In-Car" delivery option at checkout. "It won't tell them where their next delivery is until that happens", said Shrivastava.

Professionals can have packages delivered to their auto in the office parking lot, which is more professional than fielding personal deliveries inside the office.

On delivery day, the Amazon Key App lets customers check if they've parked within range of the delivery location, and provides notifications with the expected 4-hour delivery time window.

Amazon on Tuesday said that it's expanding its Amazon Key in-home delivery service to customers' cars.

The day of the delivery, the driver is sent to the address you gave for the vehicle.

The second delivery was on a Saturday, and it was then I could really see the value.
