Shop with a ‘snap:’ Snapchat and Amazon team up for new smartphone feature

Local News

Snapchat and Amazon are offering a new feature to shop with a “snap.” 

Social media app Snapchat is teaming up with Amazon to let users shop with their smartphone cameras.

Users can point the Snapchat camera at a physical product or barcode and do a visual search by pressing and holding on the camera screen.

If Amazon recognizes the product, it will present a link to buy that product or similar ones on Amazon.

Users can tap on the prompt to be redirected to Amazon’s app or website and purchase the item.
